When Visual Studio 2005 was released it replaced ASP.net projects with a new Web Sites model. This new conceptual model was designed to simplfy configuration and deployment. Previously a ASP.net site would be compiled into a single assembly before it was used, the new "Web Site" did not do this.

However, because there was no easy way to upgrade to this new model (and many people prefered the project model) Microsoft released the Web Application Project option.

WAPL (Web Application Project Libraries) requires this option (hense the name), to install it follow the instructions in How to Install Microsoft's Web Application Project Option.
