Debugging the application

It seems that Visual Studio internal web server won't serve the CSS correctly for some reason. Because of that, and also because the application is going to run under UltiDev Cassini, I recommend debugging the application using UltiDev Cassini Web Server.

To make UltiDev Cassini start as a debugging web server please do this:
  1. Bring up properties of the web application and select "Start Options"
  2. Select "Start external program" radio button and in the edit box next to it enter the path to the UltiDev Cassini EXE. Usually it's "C:\Program Files\UltiDev\Cassini Web Server for ASP.NET 2.0\UltiDevCassinWebServer2.exe" on x32 boxes and "C:\Program Files (x86)\UltiDev\Cassini Web Server for ASP.NET 2.0\UltiDevCassinWebServer2.exe" on 64-bit boxes.
  3. In the "Command line arguments" text box enter /run "<your web application folder>", for example:
/run "c:\UltiDevMusicPlayerSample\WebApp"
This will start UltiDev Cassini Web Server in the command line mode and launch the default browser pointing to the Defaul.aspx page.
