Article summary


Prefix uses a simple Windows installer and takes just a couple minutes to install.

Check out the Getting Started Prefix page to download and install Prefix on your workstation.

.NET Framework

.NET Framework:

Prefix only supports v4.5.2 and later of the .NET Framework

A module used by Prefix is pre-installed into IIS during the installation. There should not be any additional configuration needed when running the app in local IIS or IIS Express.

.NET Core

.NET Core:

Prefix only supports 2.1 and later with primary testing on LTS releases (2.1 and 3.1)

All you need to do is create a Stackify.json file that contains your app name as shown below.

Naming your Application

Create a file named Stackify.json and save it in the deployment folder of your application.

    "AppName": "MyApp"

This app name setting will be used to display your different apps when viewing requests and traces in Prefix.

Important note on Stackify.json location:

The Stackify.json file location will differ depending on the type of application. The easiest way to ensure it's added to the correct location is to mark it in VS as "Copy to Output Directory" and set it as "Copy Always".
