I've inherited a website which has been developed for IIS server. The hyperlinks in this website have a href attribute with the human readable form that appears in the url in the browser's searchbar. In Application_BeginRequest(), there is a method which will convert this into the acutal location of the page within the website's file structure.This works fine when running the website on IIS. However, when I am using the ASP.NET development server, the links do not work and I get a page not found error.I have noticed that Application_BeginRequest() is never called for the links when run using the ASP.NET development server. I have read that the ASP.NET development server will not serve pages that are outside of the application scope (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/58wxa9w5%28VS.80%29.aspx), as the human-readable urls would appear to be when first processed by the server.Bear in mind that the urls in the aspx files are in human readable form, so I can't just use ResolveUrl(), because they don't correspond to files in the internal file structure until they have been re-written.I want to get the website running on the ASP.NET development server so that I can test it locally on my machine, which I can't really do if I can't get the url re-writing to work. Is there a way around this problem?
