What is required to run application developed within Xamarin Studio ? With visual studio there is IIS used to host applications, I downloaded IIS 8.0 express but still the same error.

    At development time XS uses the bundled XSP server. At deployment time you have a bunch of options - IIS (Windows only), Apache+mod_mono, nginx/lighttpd+fastcgi, etc.

  • When I run an application it says:

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    The resource cannot be found.

    Could it be the XSP server not installed ?

    There's probably no handler for the "/" path. Try putting the path of your index page into the browser.

  • Thanks for the help Michael :smiley: It works now.

    If I added an index.html to the project, the address will show that index page, and also will show my page.
