Testing a website with a root path

This post is really a reminder to myself, so that I can find the information quickly for the next time I reformat my hard drive!

To run a website with a root path in Visual Studio 2005 follow these steps:
  1. Tools->External tools menu
  2. Click Add
  3. Title = Webserver
  4. Command = C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\WebDev.WebServer.EXE
  5. Arguments = /port:8080 /path:$(ProjectDir)
  6. Tick "Use output window"
Whenever you need the webserver running just open your project and go to Tools->Webserver.
