Reviews for this release

Does what I wanted it to: manage IIS Express without mucking about on the command line. Decided to leave a review since it worked without the 'errors' reported by a previous user. One issue I did see: the started/stopped indicator for the site I was managing took a while to reflect the actual state.

Thanks for the feedback. The delay in start/stop is by design, so as to properly handle the case when IIS Express suddenly crashes due to a specific error. Will list that in known issues soon.

This is exactly the software I needed to confidently use IIS Express rather than full IIS, which allows me to finally stop launching Visual Studio as an admin! What a great tool this is. Thank you.

Pretty solid for an alpha build. Great tool - will be keeping this one in my back pocket and can't wait to see how it improves.
