Sorry wasn't aware this was active. I did get a version to work w/ modified WorkDir and no Alias. Had to copy all admin files to new docBase location. <Context WorkDir="C:\newtmp" docBase="C:\Users\Justin\OneDrive\wwwroot" path="/"/>

Oh... as I recall the docBase had to go to \wwwroot not some other name of subdirectory.

The basic command below is working for me now, however the Alias attribute does not seem to in my testing. Given that I don't plan to do any more testing, as far as I'm concerned you can close the bug.
