Visual Studio 2005 on Vista 5308 - ASP.NET DEVELOPMENT SERVER

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Robert Cervantez, Apr 8, 2006.

  1. Hi everyone,

    I've installed vs2005 and am trying to run a brand new web site
    using the web server that comes with vs2005 (not IIS). Immediately, after I
    create the site (before I even run it!), I get the following error message:

    Error 1 C:\Users\<myaccount>\Documents\Visual Studio
    2005\WebSites\WebSite3\Default.aspx: ASP.NET runtime error: An error occurred
    loading a configuration file C:\Users\<myaccount>\Documents\Visual Studio
    2005\WebSites\WebSite3\Default.aspx 1 1 C:\...\WebSite3\

    Also, if I choose to bypass the error and run the site, I get the following

    Server Error in '/WebSite3' Application.

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the
    current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about
    the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set
    to an instance of an object.

    Does it require that my system have IIS installed? I know in XP, when I run
    the web site, it says ASP Development server v8.0.0 or something like that..
    it seems that it's trying to run the "real" web server.. ?
