Exclamation Chapter 1- Creating Your First ASP.NET 4 Web Site

Software Information:

1. Windows 7 Professional 64bit.

2. Version of .NET Framework is “4.0.30303 RTMRel.”

3. Version of Visual Studio 2010 Premium is 10.0.30319.1 RTMRel.”

During the last couple months I experienced no problems while building C# Windows Forms and WPF Applications. Now, I am trying to build a C# ASP.NET Web Site and or an ASP.NET Web Application. I have encountered a major problem. When I right click my Web Site’s file name in the Solution Explorer and select “View in Browser” or Select “Debug” then “ Start without debugging” the browser hangs up with the word “Connecting” on the browser's tab. I have to “ctl + alt + delete” to clear it. The below text appears in the "Output Window."


------ Build started: Project: C:\...\WebSite1\, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------

Validating Web Site

Building directory '/WebSite1/Account/'.

Building directory '/WebSite1/Scripts/'.

Building directory '/WebSite1/'.

Validation Complete

========== Build: 1 succeeded or up-to-date, 0 failed, 0 skipped ==========



I had read in a book that I should install IIS in Windows 7 before working with ASP.NET and so I tried that and it had no change. I also uninstalled the RC1Rel version of Visual Studio and re-installed the RTMRel. Nothing changed, still hangs up.

I desperately need help!

Hi there,

Where in the book does it say "that I should install IIS in Windows 7 before working with ASP.NET "? You can use the built-in web server and only need IIS for deployment. Are you sure yoou posted this in the right book's forum?

Did you uninstall the RC before you installed the RTM? That's a requirement from the intallation documentation so results may be unpredictable if you uninstalled the RC afterward.

Otherwise, I suggest contacting Microsoft support and asking them for help. There might be an issue with other software such as anti virus or malware tools.

Cheers,

Imar

No, I read about the IIS settings in another book before buying your book.

My problems began in Step #8 on page #7. When I pressed "Ctrl+F5" it did not load the browser. My "Ctrl+F5" and "F5" both open the "Open File" dialog box. So, I had to learn another way as stated in the previous question. However, I do remember when I was using Visual Studio 2008 C# Express my function keys worked as debugging shortcuts. They don't now here in Visual Studio 2010. I have to use the menus for such activity.

Sorry, I forgot to answer your other question.

I was using the RC first, then un-installed it, followed up with installing RTM.

If your shortcuts are messed up you can try resetting all settings as explained at the end of Chapter 1.

Cheers,

Imar
