When I only had the SDK installed, I could enter an aspx file in my browser address bar (http://localhost/file.aspx
). and it would display correctly the file stored in my IIS wwwroot directory (C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\file.a
Now that I have VS.NET installed, when I load the same file, I get a file save/open box, and then it opens up VS.NET and displays the code in the IDE. Obviously, I can't correctly preview the page this way.
My IIS server appears to be working properly. When I enter an asp file in the browser address bar, as opposed to an aspx, it functions properly.
I went into folder options to change the "open with" file from VS.NET to Internet Explorer, but that didn't work either.
