IE 9 and Debuging in Visual Studio

Some of you probably find out that the beta version of IE9 seems to cause some issues when we want to run an ASP.NET or Silverlight in debug in Visual Studio. In reality, there is no issue. In fact, it’s IE9 who is too fast, compare to the Web Development Server (also called Cassini) which take longer to instantiate. A friend of the .NET Montreal Community Étienne Tremblay found a workaround for this issue. He wrote a post about his solution: http://geekswithblogs.net/etiennetremblay/archive/2010/10/07/ie-9-cassini-and-the-dreaded-dns-error-or-page.aspx

I tried it and it work fine for me!

Thanks Étienne!


ASP.NET Security Update–Important

Last week Microsoft release an alert on an security vulnerability associated with ASP.NET. A workaround was announce while waiting an official.

Today, Microsoft release the official security patch. Here is the link to access the security bulletin and the files: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms10-070.mspx

For more information, you can also look at the blog of Scott Guthrie about the security issue http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2010/09/28/asp-net-security-update-now-available.aspx

So as per the recommendation of Microsoft, you should apply the patch to make sure you web application as soon as possible.
