Bought new notebook with Win 8.1 and I’m not unable anymore launch web apps just from clicking to run button in IDE. Earlier in Windows 7 after clicking run button Internet browser was launched with my web app, but now, if I click run - almost nothing happens. IDE shows that My Application.exe runs, but I cant see it and all I can to, is press to stop button in IDE. If I build manually that exe and launch it, then it starts and I can access it from internet browser. What I am missing?
Do you have a default browser defined in the OS?
Can you access the app by clicking “Run” and go to http://127.0.0.1:8080 (or the port you defined)?
Yes - I have default browser. No - after clicking run I cant access, because in processes I cant see that this exe is running. If I build it and launch it, then it works as it must to. Maybe is problem from there that I installed Xojo in drive D: because I my C: drive is SSD and I don’t want install it there. I saw some kind of messages in IDE massage area:
I can’t even open case in feedback environment:
Help! It’s not thinkable to write code if I must every time manually build executable and manually launch it and refresh a browser!
Two things to look for:
- Search your project for references to C: just in case you’re hard coding a folder item.
- Check the debug destination in Build Setting Shared.
First point did not help, because even Xojo demo apps won’t launch, but your second suggestion was in bulls eye. Yes - there was N/A in that box. I linked it to Xojo default build folder and voila - as good as in old Windows 7 times.
If be honest, I thought about it myself, but I don’t tried it because I never wrote in this box earlier and all was worked out of the box. Anyway - wisdom comes with every day. Thanks again - you saved my day and many hours in future.
Glad to be of help.
