As a developer I need to create a web application first on my localhost PC and then deploy it to the production server. On my PC I installed MG Studio and web server extensions.
If I use the basic web layout (e.g. AJAX) I can see in application my map without any problems. But if I try to use in the same way any flexible web layout then map newer shows up, even though I do not get any errors.
In other words this URL works:
but this URL does not work:
All panes are loaded into the browser, but all of them are empty.
Replacing “localhost” with 127.0.0.1 does help. The map still does not show up.
I found a temporary workaround for this issue. I did the following:
1. Changed in IIS 5 (this version of IIS is on my PC) Application Protection from High (Isolated) to Low (IIS Process) for all five folders:
2. Repaired MGE web server extensions through add/remove programs
3. Restarted PC
Then “localhost” works.
If I install Update 1 for MGE web server extensions - then localhost does not work again, no matter what settings are in ISS.
So, the problem is hiding somewhere between IIS 5 Application Protection setting and MGE web server extensions.
Update 1 only worsens the problem.
As a result I can now use the localhost to develop and test applications, but I cannot install Update 1.
