VS.NET cannot detect Web Matrix web server

I'm running VS.NET 2003 on XP Home, so I have Web Matrix installed as a web server (I don't have IIS).

I wanted to create my first web application with VS.NET, but when I select New Project -> asp.net web application I get the following message:

VS.NET cannot detect a web server running asp.net 1.1... etc.

I have the NET framework installed (SDK). Also I notice that I do not have a web server icon in my system tray. Do I have to do something to configure or enable Web Matrix web server (I only installed it).

Many thanks

VS.NET 2003 requires IIS; Web Matrix local web server will not work for that.

Thanks for that Brian. I was beginning to suspect as much. Could I use Apache or some other free web server?

Out of the box, I don't believe so.  I don't know if you can create custom code to change that or not...  I would suspect no, though.

Looks like I'm going to have to upgrade to XP Pro then. Thanks for your help. Do I have to close this thread?

XP Pro would be a good choice.  Mark the thread resolved at the top.

C#.NET in VS.NET vs. C# in Web Matrix
Hi all, I am very new to .NET ... I realized C#.NET is only available from Visual Studio.NET ... however, I realized Web Matrix also allowed us to choose C# as language but not C#.NET ... they are not the same, right? If not, then why it's in Web Matrix which runs ASP.NET?? If I need to run C#.Net, I MUST GET VS.NET, right? Can C#.NET has the abality to create chat program? Thank you very much.

Using web matrix web server with Visual Studio .NET 2003
Hello all, I am a computer system technology student and my college is a part of the MSDN Academic alliance, so I managed to recieve an educational copy of Visual Studio.NET 2003. Seeing as I am on a work term and actually have free time at night... I have decided to punish myself and learn another technology. My problem is that I am running it on a Windows XP Home edition system at home, so I cannot run IIS. I do have the professional CD, also from MSDN acdemic alliance, but, 1) I may someday use my XP Home to produce comercial solutions in HTML, PHP, JSP or other (though I'll pr...

possible to use both vs.net and web matrix for web application development?
Hello there, i am wondering will it possible to develop a web application using a mixture of web matrix and VS.NET? Say for example, on my application, i developing a web service module(both client n web service ) in VS.NET while my teammates is doing their web application module using webmatrix.

Pls someone answer my doubts, thanks! If you do component programming ofcourse yes. it is like one ...

web matrix web server vs IIS...
Im just starting out with asp.net, downloaded Web Matrix, im attempting to do some very simple things with a MSSQL database, display contents of a table, edit those contents through a form etc. Basic displaying of a table was acomplished easily by simply dragging a table across from the datasources I had open, however as soon as I turned off the webmatrix web server, and used IIS, this falls over with an error about not being able to connect to the MSSQL database... Does Web Matrix use its own tags that only the web matrix web server can read? Or is it a matter of changing the Connecti...

deploying web matrix web pages to host web server
Hi:I'm new to this forum and also in developing asp .net web pages.  I created web pages using Web Matrix v0.6.812.0 (connecting to an Access backend in the same folder as the web pages). Now I need to upload it to my company's web server (Windows 2000 with IIS and .Net Framework 1.1) so the customer can see them.  My administrator created a virtual site for me on the company's web server and I copied the .aspx, .ascx, .css, .mdb and web.config files to the directory for my virtual site.   When I try to access my default.aspx file on the web server thr...

VS.Net vs. Web Matrix
I have used the Web Matrix with a couple of books who use it and thought is was really cool. I would like to use it more but my issue is that no one at work knows about it. All our developers use VS.Net. So I don't want to be the odd man out. So my question is: how are people here using it? In a development environment? Just for learning? Are most people using it for just learning and then planning to move up to VS.net? I am not looking down at the web matrix. I am a big fan of it. I am also a huge fan of Front Page 2003 too which most of our devs can’t see the value ...

web matrix vs vs.net
i am confused about what web matrix is for. can't i do everything in visual studio? do i need web matrix to develop an asp.net application in visual studio? Hi, If you have visual studio.net, just forget web matrix. Web matrix is a free development tool provided for beginners or rather users who cannot afford to have visual studio.net (price, license etc.,) If you have visual studio.net, you can pretty well do asp.net applications. don't bother about web matrix. Hope it clarifies. Thanks.regards,Harishhttp://geekswithblogs.net/ranganh HI! I have Visual Studio .net(lice...

vs.net and web matrix
do these applications work together? if i have vs.net can share work with someone using web matrix? how would i get the web matrix projects into my vs.net project? I don't think webmatrix supports code behind files. I am not sure on thsi as I have never really used it myself. I am also unsure if webmatrix uses sln files like visual studio does. I always thought that webmatrix ran the SDK and followed the same setup as it as far as what files and what type of files it supports. You could get someone working on either one to collaborate on a project, it just won't be as easy as...
