Web Applications Using IIS Express

In order to profile a Web Application using IIS Express, you should specify the following options:

  • Configuration file
    Run IIS Express using the default configuration file. If this option is selected, the web site that should be run also have to be selected.
  • Application path
    Do not use the configuration file but run another application. Specify the full path to the application here.
  • Open URL
    URL to invoke the web application.
  • in browser
    A browser that should run the application. The default system browser is pre-selected.

If the Advanced checkbox is turned on, you are able to additionally specify the following parameters:

  • Server
    The version of IIS Express that should run the application. Depending on your operating system and installed .NET framework versions, this list will yield different options.
  • Runtime version
    .NET Framework version under which a profiled application must be run.
  • Port
    The HTTP port used by the server.
  • Autodetect
    If turned on, dotTrace will automatically try to detect the HTTP port.
