chapter 2 - run page in browser
above all I want to say that your books are amazing and very very helpful.
So, for me the most important thing to understand and to follow the content are the Try-It-Out exercises. And here begin the first problems.
First of all, I cannot open any page but the default pages in any browser by clicking the "Run" button. It always gave me a 403 or 404 error message. I solved this problem by adding the whole extension of the page, e.g. localhost:XXXXX/Try Out.cshtml.
But when I followed the instructions of the Try-it-Out exercise for using an external Style Sheet on page 40, I recognised that the menu items of the mentioned exercise page don't open any link in the browser neither.
I mean the "nav" div with the a href elements home.cshtml, about.cshtml and contact.cshtml. Clicking them in the nav bar of the page gives me the following error:
Server Application Error '/', Connection string "Users" was not found.
I'm quite new to ASP.NET and a beginner in Web Design in general. But it's quite a pity not being able to reproduce the exercises or at least find a solution to solve this problem.
I would be very happy if anybody could help me out here. Maybe with instructions to correctly configure the IIS Manager or maybe to create a connection string within the Web.config file or whatever.
Kind regards of a big wrox fan.
