Earlier today the IIS Express team released the IIS 8.0 Express Beta, and there are some great new features in this release! Here are just a few of the highlights:
You can read more about this release at the following URL:
"%UserProfile%\Documents is not for you my friend. I will thank you to keep your stuff out of my documents folder. I'd like to use it for documents, you know?
Try "%UserProfile%\IISExpress next time.
I gave up on feeling like I had any control over %UserProfile%\Documents years ago. I just abandoned it and keep real documents somewhere completely different.
Anyway, I have a question - given that Visual Studio 2010 is x86, how can I use IIS Express to debug web applications that need to run as x64? Do I need to start IIS Express outside of Visual Studio and then attach to the process? If that's the case then I might as well just use standard IIS.
I agree, how is the content of IISExpress like a Word Document or Excel Spreadsheet to justify being in my Documents folder?
Well, we ARE talking about the same company that puts pictures/video/music libraries on Data Center Edition as well... So no surprises that they think that My Documents is where this stuff goes.
So, to echo the feedback: I agree - it doesn't belong there - or at least let me chose that. (No, really.)
OTHERWISE, complaints/feedback aside: this is stellar. Great work.
