    Creating VB/ASP.NET applications on WinXP?


    I don't get it, so I hope someone can help me understand what I'm doing wrong.

    I did a fresh install of Windows XP RC1 on my test machine. It connects to
    the web fine, and it was "activated".

    I then did an install of Visual Studio.NET Beta 2. When I did this, it detected
    that I didn't have IIS configured correctly, nor FrontPage extensions. I
    followed the documentation and set both of these up and was then able to
    install VS.NET successfully.

    I can create new VB.NET apps fine except for ASP.NET ones.

    Whenever I try and create an ASP.NET application it complains about not being
    able to create \\localhost\...\WebApplication1.

    It gives me a couple of other options to try like the explicit local address
    "C:\inet...\...\WebApplication1" or whatever it is, but all of them get rejected.

    I'm figuring it's an obvious security issue, but having never dealt with
    this side of application development before, I have NO idea what to do.

    Can anyone help me?

    All i can say is, i had the same experience in a Win2000/.Net beta 1 configuration.
    The solution i found (probably not the best one) was to format the machine,
    install windows, then IIS and finally VS.NET. This worked, but it 's a bit
    radical.
