Right, I've gotten a bit further. Most settings seem (to my inexpert eye) to be done. When I attempt to start the service in Mendix Service Console 3.0, I get the following error:
com.mendix.m2ee.api.AdminException: runtime.start() should not throw anything other than AdminException! at fP.a(SourceFile:58) Caused by: com.mendix.systemwideinterfaces.MendixRuntimeException: ImagePath C:\TestEnvironments[projectname]\Project\web\ui\images\icons is not a directory
I'll freely admit I'm out of my dept. I've checked the icons directory, but I can find nothing wrong with it. I'm guessing the actual cause of the error is something else, but I haven't found any reference to this exact error anywhere.
Thanks for the link. I've got IIS configured and working (up to a point). However, the IIS Manager doesn't show the MIMEtype feature I need .
A reason + solution is suggested in this link: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6374419/no-mime-types-option-in-iis-7
The solution requires the aforementioned Server Management feature that is not part of Windows 7. Is there a way around this?
On a sidenote, the Mendix-on-Windows manual mentions specific configurations for Windows Server 2003 and 2008 later in the manual (haven't gotten that far yet) so I fear that even if I manage to work around this specific issue, my troubles aren't over yet. Has anyone tried a similar Windows 7 setup before?
Could you not just set the mime type in the registry? See this
Could work. My experience with reg is somewhat limited, but it looks reasonably straightforward. Will give it a shot. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll let you know how things pan out!
