Hi Andrew,

You're still confusing things.

In IIS there's a "metabase" that configures what Applications exist,
and it is separate thing from the tree of real and virtual folders. It
commands isolation, startup/end code, ASP.NET /bin directory,  etc..
and you can  set it independently in each folder and it is inheritable
by any subfolders, but also can be overriden at any subfolder by
creating another Application at that folder.

So you have a tree of real/virtual subdirectories and you can place an
application at any of it nodes, it is just not "Automatic" beyond the
first level (more properly when you create a virtual folder the wizard
creates a new Application on it for you but not for any subfolder of

The point is: Why should we make ourselves incompatible and also
degrade performance and easy of debugging by not abiding to the
Application concept? It is part of the ASP.NET architecture.

What you can have is some kind of wizard to create Applications
recursively at any subfolders you want, and keep them synchronized.
But there are complications like having to deal with multiplied

As it may easily become quite unmanageable I would rather prefer to
centralize binaries...
