Fun with Atlas – well not quite yet

I have been trying to do some of the Atlas Hands on Labs.

First, I tried them on my newly set up Vista machine. I had problems getting the file system (aka ASP.NET Development Web Server – so is that called WADWSF now?).  Finally I decided that there is just something WRONG with Vista and the file WADWSF. Even with a simplistic web site that did not involve Atlas, the web server would not consitently start up. I don’t seem to have IIS installed on this box, but Plip has a solution for using IIS on Vista over here (first post, second post).

Next I decided to use my regular laptop (WinXP). Dumb me, I installed the brand spanking new RC bits that I got at PDC, and then discovered that the current Atlas bits only work with Beta 2.

Aargh. So tomorrow morning, I’ll just plug my external USB hard drive in which has Beta2 on a VPC.

I am so hoping to give my user group quick looks at Vista, Atlas and LINQ tomorrow night at the VTdotNET meeting.
