I want to follow these instructions to Configure Windows Authentication:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff647405.aspx#paght000025_configuringwindowsauthentication

BUT, I lose them on Step #1) Start Internet Information Services (IIS).

I use Visual Studio 2010 Professional and the integrated test environment. How do I configure this to use Windows Authentication?

I do not have IIS installed on this PC and can not use the option (in Visual Studio2010)

"Use Local IIS Web server"

What does "Override application root URL do?

You can install IIS easy enough, using Control Panel -> Program & Features -> Turn Windows Features on/off.

This document suggests the built-in web server, Cassini, does not support Windows authentication, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744835(v=vs.95).aspx

Also note that Visual Studio’s Development Website (Cassini) does not support Windows authentication.

Built-in means the one used by Visual Studio?
