last week I got a new machine with windows 7, in my company all other developer machins are win XP.
so I am the first one who tries to develop in the company on windows 7.
after installing all the necessary things, I tried open our solution, the solution has some .net class library projects and a web site. the problem I encountered is:
visual studio was not able to open the correct web site, meanning: IIS was pointing to the web site but visual studio opened as web site the parent folder of the web site.
I have tried to figure out what is the problem and this is what I did: I manually removed the web site from the solution in visual studio, then I added it again pointing to the correct location, this worked fine but then I had to build all the refrences on
my own, so this is not a good solution, then I opened the solution file with notepad and I saw this: that the web site is called "oblicore" (my company name) instead of "localhost" as was written in the original solution file.
so I simply undo all my changes and then manually changed the solution file like this: every occurance of "localhost" was changed with "oblicore", this solved everything and after openning the solution in visuam studio it was fine,
my questions are:
1.why we have in windows 7 another behaviour? can it be solved by changing the IIS configuration?
2. how can I solve it, since now if I check in my solution I am going to ruin it for all the win XP users.
