IIS Express hanging when launched from visual studio

I recently built up a new machine at work and grabbed all my latest projects out of SVN only to find that one of them no longer seemed to start.

Since checkout I hadn’t changed any code, got a clean build, but when the browser window opened it just hung, with no error.

I eventually found this was because I was using the UrlRewrite module on the site (with the rules in the web.config file) but had forgotten to install this component on my IIS on the new machine. An error message would have been nice!

Ninject + WCF Docs

I’ve recently started using Ninject, having previously only used Unity as my IoC container, but it seems the internet is scarce of any documentation. I’ve employed the WCF extension, and found this handy guide on how to get up and going with it. www.aaronstannard.com/post/2011/08/16/dependency-injection-ninject-wcf-service.aspx

ps- This is my 200th blog post! Woohoo!
