| | Simulator Problems with VS2008 and MDS
Please Login to Remove!
I am trying to develop an MDS application using the VS2008 plugin and all seemed to be going well, following the DevCon Labs pdf, but when I try to run the simulator to check my efforts it fails at the "Check Device Dependencies" with the detail as :
[Check Device Dependencies] Unable to connect to the remote server
I have googled this, and I am running this as a member of the Administrator group on both the network and my local machine.
I am however behind a tight firewall and proxy and wondered whether this may have any effect.
To try and debug this further, I tried to load up a website from my local host and was prompted for a username, password and domain. Once I had entered these, it could see the local webpage.
Maybe its an authorisation thing?
Also, I go into the advanced menu's on the simulator and check the MDS settings. MDS is set to not activated, and when I try to activate it it fails! Is this the issue?
I have checked the server hostname and it is pointing to http:localhost:17801/mds which is the right port for the MDS development server, I just wonder whether there is an authentification issue between the simulator and my machine?
Can anybody advise me?
