building webservices in VS 2005

hi there,

i currently moved from VS2003 to VS2005 so i'm not really comfortable
yet with the inner workings of the new ide. i've created a webservice
and figured, that when attempting to debug it, the webserver shipped
with VS2005 starts up and the default (service) page is displayed in the
browser. on my machine (athlon 1200MHZ, 1Gig RAM, winXP pro) this takes
up to two minutes. in VS2003 when webpages where debugged through IIS it
was a lot faster.

my question is, how can i avoid the visual studion webserver being used
for debugging, but instead use the IIS? if this is not possible, is
there anything i could tweak to make the whole thing a little faster
(besides buying new hardware ;)?

thanks in advance!

Look in the Web tab of the project properties. You can choose to use IIS,
and even to have VS create the virtual directory for you.

hey john,

thanks for your reply. but i don't have a "Web" tab in the property
pages. the only options i've got there are:
- References
- Build
- Accessibility
- MSBuild Options
did i miss something while setting up the project?

kind regards, matthias

You have to go to menu File/New Web site and then you select what type Web
site - VS 2005 File System, IIS, etc etc, and then you select the type of
project ASP.NET, ASP.Net Web Service, etc, etc.

Or, better still, never use File->New->Web Site. Use File->New->Project
instead.
