Default Chapter 15: WSAT doesn't show up

Hello everyone,

first of all: I really enjoy your Book Imar. Two Thumbs Up for this great stuff.

Now, to my Problem I got in the "Try It Out" in Chapter 15, P 542, first Step: When I click Website --> ASP.NET Configuration, ASP.NET launches a Development Server, which shows up in the System Tray, but except that nothing further happens. My Browser (Mozilla Firefox) remains untouched and no error message is thrown.

I am using Visual Studio 2008 Professional V 9.0, with Visual Web Developer 2008. My web.config contains the following Definitions:
Code:
<connectionStrings>
    <add name="PlanetWroxConnectionString1" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\PlanetWrox.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
</connectionStrings>  

<membership>
    <providers>
        <clear />
        <add name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.0.0, 
            Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" 
            enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" applicationName="/" requiresUniqueEmail="false" 
            passwordFormat="Hashed" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" minRequiredPasswordLength="6" 
            minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="1" 
            passwordAttemptWindow="10" passwordStrengthRegularExpression=""/>
    </providers>
</membership>
I would really appreciate, if someone has an Idea, whats behind this.

Big Thanks from Germany,
Robin

Hi Robin,

Glad you're enjoying the book.

The behavior you're seeing is rather strange; it isn't supposed to be like that. A few things you can try:

1) Double click the webserver in the tray. It should display a link to the root of the server. Does clicking it bring up your site?

2) If 1) works, try changing the address in the browser to this:

http://localhost:57462/asp.netwebadminfiles/default.aspx?applicationPhysicalPath=C:\BegASPNET\PlanetWrox\&applicationUrl=/

Change the parts in bold to match your setup / port number.

3. Create a new site using File | New Web SIte. Then open the WSAT. Do you get it then?

Imar

Hi Imar,

thanks for you quick and helping advice. Here is my feedback, my results:

1: Jepp, it showed up. // (showing an error message)
2: BigTime it worked out fine: I see WSAT in full pride.
3: Unfortunately it behaves the same way with a new Website.

Thank you very much,
now i can go on and finish the remaining work.
Robin

Very strange that it doesn't work directly.

Have you tried installing Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2008?

Hi Imar,

no I haven't yet. I will do now.

I've got to correct a Information I have given in my opening Post, even though I do not know if it's totally usual or the original issue. When I try to open WSAT (by Website --> ASP.Net Configuration) VS doesn't launch one, but two Development Servers.

Anyhow, I go for the service Pack now.

Robin
