When creating web applications with an embedded &dw; Viewer, you may need to debug using IIS instead of the web server built in to Visual Studio.

Switching to IIS

To switch to using IIS:

  1. In Visual Studio, open the Properties screen for the web project.
  2. On the Web tab, select “Use Local IIS Web server.”
  3. In the “Project Url” field, verify that the auto-generated URL is acceptable, then click “Create Virtual Directory.”
  4. Save your changes and re-run the project.

If you get an error stating that the virtual directory could not be created because the IIS 6 metabase is not available you can:

  • Create the Virtual Directory manually in the IIS management console, or
  • Install the “IIS 6 Metabase and IIS 6 Configuration Compatibility” component:
    1. Open the Control Panel, then click Programs and Features.
    2. In the left pane, click “Turn Windows features on or off.” The Windows Features dialog box opens.
    3. Select the Internet Information Services check box.
    4. Expand Web Management Tools → IIS 6 Management Compatibility and select the IIS 6 Metabase and IIS 6 Configuration Compatibility checkbox.
