Getting 3.1 to start in debug mode in 2003.


Hi All,

I have a run time version of dnn installed and working at D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\dotnetnuke on my laptop.

I want to be able to learn how to write DNN modules etc and so I have installed the source code in D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\dotnetnuke3100\.

I set the debug flag in web.config to yes.....

as in the lines..

<!-- set debugmode to false for running application -->

<compilation debug="true" />

I updated the solution file D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\dotnetnuke3100\Solutions\DotNetNuke.All to look at localhost/dotnetnuke3100 which is my source code version. I have created the appropriate virtual directory.

I open D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\dotnetnuke3100\Solutions\DotNetNuke.All and I build the project successfully.

When I try to start a debug it says...

"A project with an Output Type of Class Library cannot be started directly.

In order to debug this project, go to the debugging tab under Configuration Settings in Project Properties, and set the Start Action to Start External Program or Start URL. Alternatively you can add a non-library project to this solution that uses a reference to this project and set it as the startup project."

I left clicked the DotNetNuke project, right clicked, clicked 'Properties' to get the 'DotNetNuke Property Pages'. I clicked on Configuration Properties, Debugging. I selected radio button Start URL and set it to /localhost/dotnetnuke3100. But when I try to run debugging or even just start it keeps coming back with this message.

Can anyone see what I have done wrong? Or not done?

Thanks in Advance.... :-)

Best Regards

Locate file default.aspx in the solution explorer under dotnetnuke project.  Right click and choose set as starting page.

From memory, I think it is the properties of the starter project where you need to change the configuration|debugging property to start url.  The starter project name is in bold.  Also click ON the ASP NET Debugging checkbox in the debugging tab.

VS .NEt 2003/ .Net 1.1 issues
Hi, I have a couple of issues with VS 2003/1.1 development on a machine.  I have no problems working with VS 2005/2.0 on the very same machine.   When creating a Web Application on my localhost IIS install, as soon as the WebForm1.aspx is created I get an ExecutionEngineException in DefaultDomain and the IDE closes.   Thinking that this could be an IDE issue, I attempted to install VS 2003 SP1.  When I try that, I get a Fatal Execution Engine Error 0x7925dc14. I have googled that error and it seems to come up in the context of some other applications a...

Datawindow .NET / VS 2003 / .NET Framework 1.1
Good day. I wish to ask if it would be possible to utilize Datawindow.NET in our Development environment of VS2003 / MS .NET Framework 1.1 in a WIndows 2000 Operating System. Thanks. AFAIK, only the DW.Net 1.x version supported VS2003 / .Net 1.x. I don't believe that version is available anymore.

Getting started with JScript.NET
I'm a Javascript and Actionscript developer, and the thought of being able to do server-sides in something I know was too good to resist. Does anyone know some good tutorials for developing ASP.NET pages in JScript?  I can find lots of console code, but simple things are hard: like I can't even figure out how to print something out to the web page (just a string). What I'm really trying to do is access a database, verify a login, and print JSON out to the response.  What should I do to start?  Is there a better way to do this? (IE: using some JSON library already?). I'm commun...
