As you already mentioned, you need to use XCopy to deploy your modules on an existing Web Client Solution.

As WCSF provides guidance to deploy each separated solutions by following the steps described in the section named to XCopy deploy a module to a Web site using ASP.NET precompilation section in How To: Deploy Modules documentation. Take into account that with ASP.NET precompilation, you precompile the Web site and deploy the compiled files to the production server with no code behind files.

Basically, you need to copy the module assembly (ModuleA.dll), the module web assembly (ModuleA.Web.dll which contains your aspx code behind files compiled) to the Bin folder of your Web Site Destination Application, and you also need to create a sub folder on this web site to allocate the aspx web pages.

Finally you need to add your module definition into Web Site Destination Application´s Web.config file.

I hope you find this information useful.
