We can't test EpiServer from Visual Studio?


Hi there,

I inherited an EpiSever project.

And for some reason it seems like I can't run it from Visual Studio. The previous developer told me that the way you do things with EpiServer is to deploy to the local IIS and test there.

Is this right?

Either that or just use IIS Express, which is shipped with Visual Studio. You can set IIS Express as default in project settings (right-click the project and choose Properties), please see

Let me try changing the configuration. I will let you know what happens. Thanks!
