Configuring IIS Express

When application is configured to run using .NET Framework 4.5 and later, Iron Speed Designer uses Microsoft IIS Express as development server.  To make sure that your application is able to use Windows or Active Directory authentication please configure the following files:

  1. applicationhost.config file in %userDir%\My Documents\IISExpress\config\ folder for the logged in user (note, that if multiple users log in to your machine you have to configure this file for each of them).

  2. appplicationhost.config file under “C:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express\AppServer”

Step 1: Find <security> node in these files and modify two subnodes.

Step 2: Disable anonymous authentication (<anonymousAuthentication enabled="false" userName="" />) and enable windows authentication (<windowsAuthentication enabled="true">)

Step 3: Save the files.
