Windows Phone Emulator and Fiddler

On an internal alias, Eric Lawrence chimed in on setting up Fiddler for the Windows Phone 7 emulator.  This is really useful, of course, for monitoring traffic to/from the emulator … since so many apps are use data services, this is a must have feature.

The first step is to set the local machine as a proxy … in the IE LAN settings (or via the control panel) like so:

Success!  In my next post, I’m going to discuss two snags I ran into with the Microsoft Ad Control – one of which I discovered while using Fiddler.
