I've installed the latest release of Orchard, and I am able to see all the modules in Visual Studio 2010. I cannot, however, see how to start a new Orchard site directly from Visual Studio. I can't believe that I have to load WebMatrix, so could you please help me to get started? Thanks.

Hey mate, if you have opened the solution in VS [obviously, if you can see all the modules], then make sure you have the ‘Orchard.Web’ [...down the very bottom of the solution] project selected and simply run (I also set the aforementioned project to ‘Startup Project’ as I had a tendency to run modules erroneously all the time). Good luck with it, cheers Dyr
