Replacing the SoftPro Start Page

Post by roteague » Thu Dec 11, 2008 5:50 pm

We would like to replace the stock SoftPro start page. I know that it can be configured in the .config file, but I wanted to see if there would be any issues related to replacing it with a native ASP.NET page.

You may redirect to an alternate landing page by providing a value for the StartPageUrl key in the SoftPro.exe.config file. Don't change the default start page (StartPage.htm) in the SelectServer IIS website because we will replace that each time during an upgrade.

It might be worth mentioning here that when you are developing and using the EXP hive you get a special .config file just for when running in EXP mode.

Select(Exp).exe.config is loaded when running in EXP mode so if you want to change StartPageURL in EXP mode you need to change it in that .config file. Changing the regular Select.exe.config won't cause your custom start page to load in EXP mode.
