ASP.Net - Running Website Locally Error

Good Day Experts!

I am running our website locally so I can test making adjustments to it.  I am a windows VB.Net coder by practice but need to learn this ASP.Net.  

I have created a page and added a LinkButton in hopes of firing off this page.  However, I am getting an error "It is invalid to show a modal dialog or form when the application is not running in UserInteractive mode."

It has been suggested to me to set Windows services to "allow interaction with desktop".  Problem is I don't know where to set this at on my computer.

Can you help me set this?

Thanks,

Can you post the code in your page and tell us exactly what you want to do?

Good Day...thanks for repsonding.  This is my first attempt at ASP.Net and it is what appears to be a simple page functionality wise.  In order to find if it is "system" related, I just made a another page with only a label on it and receive the same error.  

So, does it feel like locally I do not have something setup correctly if I cannot even fire up a dummy page from behind a LinkButton?  

I am trying to use this code --> Response.Redirect("Copy of ReportList.aspx")

Thanks,

Hi  Jimbo99999,

I think you are trying to display messagebox ( as you are useful to VB.Net coding its quite usual) but in asp.net there is no messagebox, you  need to use Javascipt/Jquery to get message boxes.

e.g,

 Protected Sub YourButton_Click(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs)
    MesgBox("Test")
End Sub


Private Sub MesgBox(ByVal sMessage As String)
   Dim msg As String
   msg = "<script language='javascript'>"
   msg += "alert('" & sMessage & "');"
   msg += "</script>"
   Response.Write(msg)
End Sub

What  a learning curve.  The page I put my linked button on was the "home" page of the reporting site that is launched from the main site.  I put the page that is to be called from that linked button in the reporting site.  In front of the "Copy of ReportList.aspx" I put the path of the reporting site and it worked!!!  It is great that it did but I am trying to wrap my head around why it did.

If I was already on the "home" page of the reporting site, whay would I have to qualify the location of this new page I added when it is in the reporting site solution?  Perhaps it has something to do with this whole thing being initiated from the main site.
