I just inherited a website to update, but it was developed in Visual Studio 2010. They want me to make updates to it, change it to standard html and css, but I only have Dreamweaver CS5.5.
I can see the code, but it does not show the website in design view. It shows perfectly live, but it's kind of hard to go back and forth to make sure I made the right edits. Many of the files have.aspx and I think I need .html
I do not want to buy any other software, so can this be done, hopefully easily?? A nice conversion tool would be awesome!!
I luv Dreamweaver and really do not want to change.
Thanks for any help!
Asp.net is a dynamic Microsoft programming language that is not readily supported by Dreamweaver. If you want to convert this site to static HTML pages, you will need to rebuild it without server-side programming. This will no doubt remove functionality that the site has currently. Ask the client if they really want you to do this.

While the above suggestions are valid, I'd suggest you let your own skills development opporunities drive your decision.
It's a dream project CS5 with a bit of PHP for SSI (Server Side Includes) is all you need.
You already have the hard part handled (getting thecontent) and it sounds like you are funded
I would set up the new site locally until it is completed.
We'll all b glad to assist
