Xamarin Studio won't run asp.net mvc 3 using xsp4 - "cannot start web server" for some reason.
Repro: Create new asp.net mvc 3 project (and correct references to system.web.*) and run it.
This is only when you change the target runtime to Mono?
Yes, only for mono.
(If I run it under .net it yields another exception (that doesn't work with CorDebugger).)
On Mono 2.10.x, xsp4.exe is in:
On Mono 3.0.6, xsp4.exe is in:
It looks like the win32 package was not updated to track the new xsp4.exe location.
FWIW if anyone's interested in submitting a patch to MD to work around this, the xsp location detection code is here:
Looks like Xamarin Studio is searching for xsp4 in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mono-3.0.6\lib\mono\4.5\winhack folder for some reason (probably because I references System.Web.Mvc and System.Web.WebPages assemblies from there.
Basically copying winhack folder to 4.5 folder does the trick.
yeah, copying the winhack to usr/lib/mono/4.5 got it running.
This has been fixed in the 3.12 windows packages.
