Don't need no stinking Localhost Webserver

Posted on 2007-07-24

Working on a XP pro box as Admin using IIS for .net development _and other stuff so I don't want to muck about with VS's localhost web server.

How do I convince VS05 of that fact. Is there any way to make a global change? If do I do so on a project by project basis?

    The Web Site model project has 'Start Options' that let you change from the default web server to IIS.  Look at the 'Use custom server' option.
