Thread: Getting started

    Default Getting started

    My IT skills are a bit outdated, still using Visual Basic and MS Access ... not good

    I would like to use your Sencha Architect to develop simple web based database application for small businesses.
    I downloaded a trial version of Sencha to see if I can learn to use it ...

    I followed the introduction notes ... created the "CarListings" Models ... however when I try to "load data" to the "CarDataStore", I get an error 404.3 ... I'm stuck and can't go any further ...can anyone help.
    I am using Windows 7 professional SP1, "IIS" as web server, Java 7 update 6, Google Chrome....
    I am able to preview the projects (web server seems to be OK??), but I can't open "cars.json".

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You can also google "IIS serve JSON files" for additional (non-sencha specific info).

    Yes, by default IIS 7 will not serve files with a .json extension. Can you browse to the file in Chrome?

    http://localhost/myprojects/test/data/cars.json (or whatever your server path is for the json file)

    If not then all you probably need to do is add a new MIME type for .json files. Here is a link with instructions:

    Let us know if that works and check that you can see the contents of the file in your browser

    Default new MIMI type for .json

    Thanks ... problem solved
    I added a new MIMI type for .json as you instructed.

    I could't find C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\asp.dll.
    I searched for another asp.dll file and used that instead: C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-iis-aspbinaries_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_8c5aa46ac8c85d9e\asp.dll.
    I am hoping this will not cause any problems down the track.

    Thanks for you help.
