This is really simple if IIS6 but I can't seem to figure out how to convert an Application back into a Virtual Directory in IIS7 without having to delete it and recreate it from scratch.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


The wording is scary but "Remove" converts it back to a regular folder. It doesn't actually delete the folder itself as you may assume. So, the command is still in the right-click on the vdir itself.

    yes, but if the fodler doesn't exist in that parent's directory structure, it disappears for good and you have to go through and add it back in manually as a Virtual Directory. – RichC Oct 30 '09 at 20:00

You can just right-click the application and click to remove button. This will convert back to the Virtual Directory.
