Publishing XAML Browser Application in VISTA


If you try to publish a XAML Browser application in VISTA you would not be allowed to publish the application to Local IIS. You will hit this issue all the time unless we make some changes in IIS and run Visual Studio as an Administrator

Once you see this type of messages follow these steps

  • Go to Control Panel-> Program and features->Turn Windows Features on or off

  • Go to Internet Information Services

  • Turn on IIS Management Compatibility, IIS Management Console and IIS Management Services Options

Now run Visual Studio as an administrator

Now you would be able to publish XAML Browser applications to local IIS
