    Do you have IIS installed? Do those locations exist? Are you logged on as an admin?

    I know these are obvious things to check but lots of people get caught out by the obvious

      Like Tony said is IIS installed? The reason he asked is that the error message you're being presented with indicates that VS.net was unable to contact the webserver in order to create the project.

      In my experience it is much easier to get things rolling if you install Frontpage Extensions (you don't need to tweak the permissions) if you're using an external server. If you take a look at your screenshot you'll see the option for it there.

      If you have IIS on your workstation don't add Frontpage Extensions because fileshare works best.

        Yes I have IIS installed...

        Yes Im logged in as Admin

        And yes those locations exist...

        I even tried running the aspnet_regiis.exe tool and it said ASP.NET has finished installing.

        Any more idea's ??

              I still recommend using Frontpage Extensions. This is usually a problem with permissions. Each time I've had this occur in the past Frontpage always worked when fileshare didn't.

              Here's a screenshot of my permissions on wwwroot on my home server which I've never had a problem creating file based or frontpage projects in VS.net 02/03/05.

                Re: Cant create new ASP.NET project

                I installed the Frontpage server extensions from Add/Remove Windows components.. Is there anything else I need to do before I can start using it??

                Thanx

                  In IIS goto the properties of the default virtual webserver and make sure it's enabled.

                  There will be a tab in the properties page.

                              Good catch there Dyspher. I guess this explains why it gave me problems with Fileshare and not Frontpage.
