Version 3.0? How to test it?

Feb 4, 2009 at 8:56 PM
Hi their,

I just downloaded the svn using the TortoiseSVN and I am able to build the solution in Visual Studio 2008 but having trouble testing or running the code.

I am some what familiar with Visual Studio 2008 but not too much, I can remember that Family.Show is a application based so I want to know how can I test it locally at my own pc?

Can anyone give me some details about how to go about testing the new version 3.0 locally at my pc?

I was able to resolve the issue by publishing it to local host.

If some one wants to keep the codeplex Family.Show in the "Start" menu under "Microsoft Family.Show" then when you will have to make the update and then rebuild and publish the application

1. Get source code
2. Open solution file (Visual Studio 2008)
3. Update the following
    a. FamilyShow >> Properties >> Publish (tab) >> Options (button) >> Description >> Product Name >> "Family.Show[.Your_Name]"
4. Publish
    a. Visual Studio 2008 >> Select Family Show Project
    b. From top tool bar -- Build >> "Pulish Family Show"
5. Test
    a. Open your local host url: http://localhost/FamilyShow/FamilyShow.application

Have fun testing,
