ASP.NET debugging in Vista/IIS7

There are two bumps in the road of debugging ASP.NET in Vista. The first is enabling Windows Authentication, which depends on properly installing IIS on your computer. The second is an issue with the debugger not being able to automatically attach to the process that is running your website. This is gotten around either by manually attaching each time (a huge pain in the rear that I got sick of in less than 30 minutes) or applying a quick patch that Mike Volodarsky, on Microsoft’s IIS team whipped up.

Mike’s blog post shows how to get past these bumps and more.
