Running a project in Visual Studio 2010 (asp .net).

Keeps complaining that Javascript is not enabled, even though it is.

Running IE 8.

I enabled Javascript by going to "internet Options...Security" and then setting Custom setting for each zone, setting "Active Scripts" to enabled.

Still complains.

If that is not an option, then what?

It would be nice to know how to do this for IE 8.

Why don't you set firefox or chrome as a default browser and run the project in visual studio?
Right click your project in solution explorer
Click 'Browse with...'
select any of the browser from the list
click 'set as default'
cancel the window
run the project (F5)
eventhough you had IE as default browser, visual studio will run the website in the selected default browser

or is the projects needed to be tested in IE only?
