Hi. So I installed this project in
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Projects\ASPNETProjects\Wrox\ThePhileVB\Books\defa ult.aspx
After fighting the config files, it kinda works. I have discovered three issues at this point:
- In IE, the page http://localhost/ThePhileVB/Default.aspx opens in a snap. No problem here. However, if I try to use Mozilla instead, it says "waiting for localhost"... and waiting, and waiting... Sometimes, after maybe five-six minutes, Mozilla gives up and says "done" but shows a perfectly blank screen. Sometimes it just hangs in there, "waiting for localhost"...
- So back in IE. On the first use of the program, if I say Login instead of Register (my bad) it throws an error (I forgot to write it down). However, after I registered, it seems to work.
- In any case, if I click on the right on any of those links (books/DVD) I get the following message:
- The error occurred in:
Exception of type System.Web.HttpException was thrown.
System.Web.HttpException: Exception of type System.Web.HttpException was thrown. ---> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Projects\ASPNETProjects\Wrox\ThePhileVB\DVD\defaul t.aspx
I checked - there is no DVD folder on my system (or Books, for that matter).
Is this a problem with my download ? I did the 'installation' as instructed in 'readme'...
I have not read the book yet, but I tried to make it run because they advice to play with the project a bit before starting.
