This post is really a reminder to myself, so that I can find the information quickly for the next time I reformat my hard drive!
To run a website with a root path in Visual Studio 2005 follow these steps:
- Tools->External tools menu
- Click Add
- Title = Webserver
- Command = C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727WebDev.WebServer.EXE
- Arguments = /port:8080 /path:$(ProjectDir)
- Tick “Use output window”
Whenever you need the webserver running just open your project and go to Tools->Webserver.
