Trying to setup GameOn

Aug 30, 2012 at 9:20 PM


I'm trying to setup this Ladder website that you've developed (great idea by the way), but am running into some troubles. I've got IIS running on my computer and have added a virtual directory (called GameOn) pointing to the contents of the Package folder from the file.

In the readme file it mentions that I should point IIS to the package/change-set directory however I don't have that directory. I have App_Data, bin, Contents, Scripts, Views, Global.asax, ReadMe.txt and Web.config.

Am I missing something? When I got to http://<machinename>/GameOn/Global.asax it just downloads the file.

Please help!

Thanks in advance.

Hi Willy,

I have added extra instructions to IIS Installation, under "installing in a virtual directory. I hope this helps. If you are using II6 and need more help, let me know.

Hi Daniel!  thanks for your response.   I got it to work on IIS with windows 7,   But when I open the main URL, i get the following javascript error: 

ReferenceError: RenderSparklines is not defined

The page displays and is otherwise appears to be OK... except that the "Play" button does not seem to respond.

These resources are not loading because it is referencing an incorrect path:


These should be the following in my case:


Interestingly, others such as Jquery mobile *IS* loading...  but they are referencing an external path on the internet:

Also,    'http://localhost:8181/Players/GetSparklinesData'  seems to be failing with 404 not found.      Not sure if I'm missing something from the zip package.

Daniel,  I figured it out...  It appears this application is not able to live under a sub virtual directory,  all the paths want to map to the root.   So I installed the application into the root directory of a new IIS website, and that worked.
