Debugging Web Apps?

Im using ASP.NET 1.1 under Windows XP, IIS5, and IE6/FF.   I'm tyring to debug my 2 web applications under Visual Studio 2003 .NET.  One application is a Rainbow Portal .NET control (GoogleMap.ascx) and the other is a standard .ASPX web app (Geocode.aspx).  GoogleMap.ascx resides within the Rainbow Portal DesktopModules dsubdirectory, while the Geocode.aspx app resides within a different folder outside of the whole Rainbow root folder.  IIS is set to have the default website root folder point to the Rainbow Portal root directory.

My problems include:
1. When I want to run both the Rainbow Portal app (which inserts my .ascx control onto a dynamic page) and the Geocode.aspx file, this is impossible.  I receive some Web.Config security error which appears to be Rainbow Portal blocking any ASP.NET page from running including if it is not within its own folder.  I normally have to switcht IIS to the root of my Geocode.aspx folder before all is fine.  

The error i receive when trying to connect to the Gecode.aspx page:
Parser Error Message: File or assembly name Rewrite.NET, or one of its dependencies, was not found.

Source Error:

Line 420:            <!-- HttpURLHandler for handling url requests -->
Line 421:            <httpModules>
Line 422:                  <add type="Rewrite.NET.Rewrite,Rewrite.NET" name="Rewrite.NET" />
Line 423:                  <!--<add name="XHTMLHTTPModule" type="AspNetResources.Web.XHTMLHTTPModule, XHTMLHTTPModule" />-->
Line 424:            </httpModules>

2. I cant debug both applications at the same time.  I've tried setting up a second web server (Abyss Web Server) on port 81 to take requests for the second applicaiton but it appears I cant debug the application.  I think IIS seems to only provide such an ability whereas Abyss is clueless.

Anyone have a solution on how to debug 2 seperate ASP.NET applications under Visual Studio .NET 2003 on the same local PC or at least know how to get around this Rainbow error message when trying to connect to a virtual folder that is outside its root folder?

you can debug two web applications.  Run both the web applications under IIS.

Now run your first application and catch at any of  the breakpoint.  Now switch to your second application and follow these steps.

1. select Debug->Process from the second application's IDE.
2. Locate and select the aspnet_wp.exe (worker process) and then click "Attach".
3. Select the "Script" and "CLR" in the pop-up box.

thats it.  Now your second application can also be debugged as like the other one. Use breakpoints to debug.
