How To Setup IIS for Local Development on Vista

This entry is going to entail the following.  Links to other entries that revolve around what I am doing to get up and running on a Windows Vista machine to develop against IIS 7.0.  So far it’s been a pain in the ass.  I’m almost there, but not yet.

ScottGu as always writes up a good one on using IIS 7.0 with Visual Studio 2005.  There is also a good entry over here, which the entire blog has great stuff (just like ScottGu’s).  Last but not least, Microsoft’s MSDN Entry.

…and that gets you running on IIS 7.0 and Visual Studio 2005.  What a ridiculous hassle.  One would think Microsoft would have fixed something of this calibre before release of Vista.  Even with this workaround it seems rather cludgie – almost hackish like.
