ASP.NET Web Service Debug problem "Please specify name of executable for debug session..."
Posted on 2007-08-07
I have created a project of type "ASP.NET Web Service" in Visual Studio 2005. When I run it on my box, (i.e. click the green debug button), it launches Internet Explorer and shows the available web service functions, as expected. However, when I move the solution file to another box and click debug, visual studio gives me a message along the lines of: "Please specify the name of the executable for this debug session." Why is this? Is it because Visual Studio was installed BEFORE IIS? What else could it be? I have tried reinstalling Visual Studio to see if it would bind correctly to IIS, etc. but no luck. Also tried running "aspnet_regiis -i". Thanks.
