I am trying to integrate SignalR into an existing WebForms based project - and am having one hell of a time. I have download a few example projects - including an example using Ext.Net which work just fine. However I am having no luck with my project.
Is there an example webforms project available somewhere that has SignalR integrated or EXACT documented steps that I would need to follow to integrate it into my existing project.
Additional information - I think it may be related to the fact that my project is still running under webdev and it doesn't look like it is actually using OWIN which I believe is a requirement for the SignalR component to function corrrectly.
Thanks in advance.

Turns out that I was a lot closer than I expected.
1) I switched to VS 2013 and ran the project and it was started with IIS express instead of webdev (not sure if there is a real dependency here or not)
2) I was getting a server 500 error on the signalr/negotiate call and was having a hard time trying to figure out how to get additional debug messages out of this framework, until I clicked on the link in Chrome debugger and got the actual exception message
at the web page - turns out that I had a version conflict with the Newtonsoft.Json library - used the version from the download and works like a charm
Now onto trying to figure out how to integrate this with my IOC container (Spring.Net) and ExtJS
