Windows Vista Support
dbQwikSite has added Windows Vista support to version 5.0 and greater.
Windows Visa Support
dbQwikSite runs under Windows Vista. In version 5.0 we offer our first official support for Windows Vista. We have tested all core features, in design and PC testing and now support all core functions on Vista. There remain some small areas that are operational, however require that you need to take some action to enable under vista.
Fully Supported in Vista*
*Vista Home BASIC edition does not support testing ASP.net page
Limited Support in Vista
We recommend you run dbQwikSite as Administrator. Depending on your database connection type and your Web Server, dbQwikSite may not be able to connect to your database, or your pages may not work properly.
If one of the following statements applies to you:
then you must run dbQwikSite as Administrator (See note 1 below)
The following restrictions will apply if you use dbQwikSite as a standard VISTA user:
If you installed IIS you will be required to either:
IIS is required to test pages using ASP.Net.
appcmd set config -section:system.applicationHost/applicationPools -applicationPoolDefaults.processModel.loadUserprofile:false
When successful, you will receive this message:
Applied configuration changes to section "system.applicationHost/applicationPools" for "MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST" at configuration commit path "MACHINE/WEBROOT/A
If not running as administrator, the command will fail with the following error:
ERROR ( message:Configuration error Filename: \\?\C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config Line Number: 0
Description: Cannot read configuration file
Notes: (1) Under VISTA, being logged-in as ‘Admin’ user does not make programs run as Administrator. All programs run in limited administrative rights.
2) To grant the correct rights to the dbQwikSite IIS Web Folders, start your Windows Explorer and locate that folder, right click to access the Properties and select the Security tab. Then, click on the Edit button to add ‘Full Control’ to the Users group as shown below:
(3) To start the Command Prompt as Administrator, pull up the Windows menu and type ‘cmd’ as shown below, then hit Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of just the Enter key. You'll then be prompted to authenticate, and your command will be executed as administrator
