This is a reminder to my future self for how to quickly start IIS Express from the command-line on 64-bit Windows 7 or 8 assuming you already have IIS Express installed using the defaults.
- Open admin command line.
- cd\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express
- iisexpress /path:c:\YourApplicationRootFolder /port:WhateverPortNumber
Note: You can also specify /clr:v2.0 if you hate fun. The default is CLR 4 which works with .NET 4 and 4.5.
