WCSF and IIS 7 - Official Support

Nov 4, 2009 at 4:09 AM

Hi guys, I just came across a few comments on the board that WCSF has known issues (with workarounds) on IIS 7. As we are evaluating WCSF for a large .net upgrade project, is there an official confirmation from the WCSF team that WCSF is not officially supported on IIS 7? Thanks!

The WCSF Documentation since February 2008 doesn’t have any particular consideration about it. If you look for it within the Issue Tracker, you will find only this thread.

Other than that, everything else should be working correctly. As for official support, you can be reassured that the sustained engineering team will provide the same support for IIS 7 than for IIS 6, if you find that something is broken in it.

As an FYI, based on that you are evaluating WCSF for a large .NET upgrade project, you might want to take into consideration that soon the patterns & practices team have plans to release a new Web Guidance, for further information visit this post.

However, this Web Guidance doesn't deprecate WCSF.

I hope you can find this answer helpful.
