can't find wedev.webserver.exe (ASP.NET Development Webserver)

I have Visual Studio 2008 installed at home on an XP Home crate.

According to books, The ASP.NET Development WEBServer wedev.webserver.exe should have been installed along with VS2008, but a file search doesn't show it up.

I also ran VS2008 setup again from control panel in maintenance mode but couldn't find an option to install wedev.webserver.exe.

How do i install it ?

Are you having problems with the project? Create a test web application, run it and see what happens.

ok, I found it in:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DevServer\9.0

as..

WebDev.WebServer.EXE

I think I need to get this folder onto the PATH, so I can run WebDev.WebServer.EXE from the Visual Studio command line. You'd have thought it would already be there!

yep, I appended that folder onto the SYSTEM path (i.e. not USER path) environment variable, and had to restart the VS command prompt, but then it worked
