Debug Website On Host From Virtual Machine?

May 4, 2010

I have a Windows 7 machine hosting a Windows 7 virtual machine. I am developing a web application using visual studio 2010 on my host machine. I want to run the application in debug mode and access my localhost server from a browser on the virtual machine. (The purpose of this is to be able to debug an application that uses Windows Authentication using different users without having to log off and on for different users on my host machine...)

I am using a bridged connection for the virtual machine. I googled how to solve this problem and most of the threads that I found said that if I was using a bridged connection, I could access the server on the host machine by just entering the IP address of my host machine into the url in the browser of the virtual machine. I have tried some different urls using the IP but none of them have worked.

As an example, suppose I run my web application in visual studio on my host machine and its url is


Assume also that I ran ipconfig in CommandPrompt on my host machine and found out that the IP address for my host machine is What url should I enter on the virtual machine to access my web application?


I set up IIS to host the web project. After that, I just added the following line ( is my IP) to my hosts file and I was able to access the website from the virtual machine:

I also had to edit my firewall settings.

Configuration :: Created A New Virtual Directory On IIS To Host Website?

Apr 11, 2010

I am developing an ASP.NET 3.5 website using Visual Studio 2008 professional on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine. The website is hosted on the local machine IIS with no problems at all. I got a new server (Windows Server 2008 R2), I created a new virtual directory on IIS to host my website. When I try to publish it, I get this error: "The Web server does not appear to have FrontPage Server Extensions installed." I have searched online and it appears that FrontPage extensions have been removed from IIS 7.5

Configuration :: Debug The Website Always On A The Same Port Number On Local Machine In VS

Jan 1, 2011

I am developing a website in ASP.NET. I wanted to know how can I give a static path to my website on my local mahcine such that it will always be deployed on port number. For eg: in php, the path can always be http://localhost/websitename

but in ASP.NET, whenever, I debug the website for testing, it is always deployed to a new port number. This prevents me from testing my script which can only be given a static name in Greasemonkey.

Iis - Viewing Development Server From Virtual Machine?

Nov 23, 2010

Microsoft recommends testing older versions of IE with the following virtual machinesThis is all fine and good, except that the virtual machines can't see the Dev Server from Visual Studio. This makes it very difficult to develop or debug since I have to copy or deploy to IIS for every little change I make. I've tried using ARR, but it seems it can only forward to one specific port at a time, whereas i need to have the port typed in the address bar of the virtual machine to match the port that it is connecting to on the host machine. Is this possible?

Virtual Machine Requires CppCodeProvider And VJSharpCodeProvider?

Feb 1, 2011

I've been dealing remotely with a weird situation with a Windows Server 2003 virtual machine that's running a ASP.NET 3.5 website... Or, at least is trying to run it.

The website was installed using the standard installer for the project, which has been used to install at several different locations. However, this one is behaving differently.

The website fails when it runs. In the Event Viewer, the following error is reported:

Exception information: Exception type: HttpException Exception message: The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

The error is reported on the website as:

Exception Details: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The specified module could not be found.(Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

Running the fusion log viewer, I can see that ASP.NET is attempting to load the following assemblies:

CppCodeProvider, Version=,
VJSharpCodeProvider, Version=,

First off, there is no reason why ASP.NET should be loading these assemblies. I can't find anywhere in machine.config or any other config where these assemblies are listed as required. We tried installing the 3.5 SDK, but neither was installed. I've only got version 10 of the CPPCodeProvider on my development machine.

What the heck is going on here??

NB: don't do a cursory google search and answer. Nothing I found applies. And if anybody answers

"Define DEBUG constant" and "Define TRACE constant"

AJAX Call Works On Local Machine But Not On Host

What could potentially stop an AJAX call from working on the host server, when it works fine on the local host? I tried returning an error from the AJAX call, but all I get is 'undefined'. I don't think the actual page method is being called since no information is added in my log (and I've explicitly added a call).

Configuration :: Web App Accesses Data Under Debug But Not When Published To Target Machine

Dec 4, 2010

I have a simple web app that queries a server based database. I have tested with both a simple MySQL table and Access tables. The problem is the same whatever 'backend database' that I use. When I run my web application under the VS 2008 debuger then all works fine. No problems with the code. I then publish my web app to either my local IIS or to a different PC's IIS on my network. I then get 'intermittnet' problems reading the data tables. The connection strings are fine. I get a connection. It is when I try and fill the tables that I get errors. The web app just seems to 'hang'.

If I publish to a different IIS on my network (on a different server) the I get the same problems. If I reboot the IIS machine then I seem to be able to get to my data for a while before the IIS seems to 'lock up' and I can't read data anymore. Is this an IIS/authentication/resource issue?

Visual Studio :: Unable To Debug VB Web Projects On Local Machine / Security Exception Error

Dec 21, 2010

Basically what I am trying to do is have my webpage project folder located directly on my local machine (ex. Local #1). Our database is located on a server (ex. Server #1) . I am building my web applications on my local machine and then trying to debug them in Visual Studio 2008. Only every single time I click to debug my project I get a "Security Exception" error that looks something like the following...

"Description: The application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission please contact your system administrator or change the application's trust level in the configuration file.

Exception Details: System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Web.AspNetHostingPermission, System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed."

I'm somewhat leaning towards the fact that I need to connect to the database to pull information from it and I don't have the proper permissions is the reason why this is happening but I've also read that it can be something that deals with improper configuration of my Web.Config file (i.e. I do not have something enabled).

Note #1: A co-worker of mine is having the same problem if he tries to put the project locally and then debug it. He has full administrative access to the DB and everything else.
