Thread: Can't create a new ASP.NET project

    Can't create a new ASP.NET project


    For some reason, I can no longer create web projects on my computer, or on
    a remote computer. When I try to create it, I get this error message:


    "The default web access mode is set to file share, but the project folder
    at 'http://localhost/test' cannot be opened with the path 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test'.
    The error returned was:

    Unable to create the project 'Test'. The file path 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test\'
    does not correspond to the URL 'http://localhost/test'. The two need to
    map to the same server location."


    I've tried reading the help and I only get stupid solutions like "make sure
    your LAN cable is plugged in" or "make sure you have permission." When I
    first got this computer I was able to create web projects fine. I have not
    changed this computer much since then. What am I doing wrong?

    BEFORE YOU ANSWER:

    I have already made sure that all the sharing and security is set up properly,
    and there is no project called 'Test' already added (that is just a hypothetical
    name).

    This may not apply to you but since I don't know what versions of software/OS you are using it might
    be worth a try:
