Dev Web Server for Azure Web Roles

by Rok Bermež 27. January 2011 13:17

Windows Azure uses 64 bit architecture so all dlls deployed to it must also be 64 bit. This poses significat development problem since 'Visual Studio Development Server'  and IIS Express run in 32 bit process. You can always use complete IIS, but it would be better if there was something more lightweight. It turns out there is. There is a nice project on codeplex called "CassiniDev - Cassini 3.5/4.0 Developers Edition" available here. Its binaries are also 32 bit so be sure to get the source and change Build platform target to either 'Any CPU' or 'x64'

  

and rebuild solution. After that just replace contents of 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\DevServer\10.0' folder with your new freshly build 64 bit capable dev server
