Change the default simulator for Visual Studi (asp .net project)



I am using Visual Studio 2005 Plug-in to develop a BlackBerry browser (asp.net) application. I can setup BlackBerry as default browser in IDE. But i am not able to change the simulator. If i am using a MDS application project i am able to choose the simulator. But with ASP .Net web project i am not able to change the default simulator. I would like to choose different simulators and test my application. Please help.

Re: Change the default simulator for Visual Studi (asp .net project)

Before you can debug your web project using the BlackBerry® Browser, you must configure the debugging host.

Right-click the solution and select Browse With.

In the Browsers list, select BlackBerry Browser.

Select Set as default. Click Cancel.

When you start debugging, the debug session uses the BlackBerry Browser.
