Thunder Test Connection Failure - VS2015

  • Thunder Test Connection Failure - VS2015
  • I have created a new Project using Sitefinity Project Manager (9.0.6010.0) and opened it in VS-2015. Installed Thunder (1.6.0.0) then thunder module to project location and tried for a test connection but fails. I tried every recommendation available over other threads but nothing helped.

    I have attached a video on OneDrive for this.  link : onedrive.live.com/redir

    Please advise. Thank you.
  • Hello,

    The reason it is likely not working is that the site is being launched from the project manager. The project manager ships with a basic built in server, but that server doesn't support a number of things and is mainly meant to help with the basics of getting a site setup quickly.

    At this point, for things to interface with Thunder properly, the site needs to be set up in IIS.
