I search everywhere Solution file + Web.config and nothing came up, than I remembered that I saw a file with extension ".Refresh" under the Bin/ inside it there was the address of the DLL that was reference.
After investigating some more (with the help a fellow colleague- Evyatar Ben Shitrit) we found that the VS 2005 deals with reference who are our of the project directory by writing the reference into a refresh file that is auto populated (because there is no web project – this is the best solution)
* Don’t forget that you have to add the file to the source control.
Look at the following article about Web Project Settings Conversion for more details.

- If you have any success or failure please comment on it.

The Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar provides several features for exploring and understanding Web pages. These features enable you to:
- Explore and modify the document object model (DOM) of a Web page.
- Locate and select specific elements on a Web page through a variety of techniques.
- Selectively disable Internet Explorer settings.
- View HTML object class names, ID's, and details such as link paths, tab index values, and access keys.
- Outline tables, table cells, images, or selected tags.
- Validate HTML, CSS, WAI, and RSS Web feed links.
- Display image dimensions, file sizes, path information, and alternate (ALT) text.
- Immediately resize the browser window to a new resolution.
- Selectively clear the browser cache and saved cookies. Choose from all objects or those associated with a given domain.

Visual Studio 2005 Web Deployment Projects (Beta Preview)
Download it and create a truly professional deployment project.
I think that this kind of project should have been dispatched 2 months ago.
Have fun :)
