"Unable to start debug on web srv" - problem with sample asp.net a

Hello,

I downloaded a sample asp.net app (in C#). When I try to run it I get the
following error message"

"Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web
server. The project is not configured to be debugged.

Click Help for more information"

So I click on help which brings up a webpage that shows the Web.config file
and says to set debug=true. I look at the web.config file for this project
(the web.config file located in the same directory as the project) and debug
= true is already set. But I still get the same error message.

If I recreate the project as a new projec and copy all the stuff from the
old project, then it runs. What do I need to do to the original project that
I downloaded so that it runs? Recreating it is a hassel.

Thanks,
Rich

Well, actually, I re-copied the project to the webroot (where I copied the
original project) and now it starts up. BTW, I am using VS2003 SP4. I guess
this must be a quirk of some sort, but I have had this problem before. Hmmm

A couple of days ago there was a thread "Returning the machine epsilon". The responses in that thread suggested using Double.Epsilon or Single.Epsilon. Since both these seem to return zero I thought I would try to compute these epsilons myself.

Hello, I'm calling a VB.NET 2003 dll that's registered in COM+. I've added a reference to it in a VB6 DLL that I'm calling from a Classic ASP page. Previously I was able to attach to my .NET dll and debug it. I haven't been able to do this in a while and I'm thinking that it must be because I've installed VS 2005 on my machine subsequently. So in my C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98 directory I added a file called...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
