I hope someone can help - I am getting desperate!

I have promised to do some work for someone developing an ASP.NET application.

I have Visual Studio 2002 installed on my pc which is running XP-Pro (and therefore IIs 5.1) and have installed .Net framework v1.1.4322.

I canot create a new web project - I get the error

"unable to validate the file path....does not match url path..."

Having scoured the web for answers (I have spent HOURS on this!) I believe it is something to do with VS trying to create a tmp file in the \inetput\wwwroot folder to validate IIS is running - and failing.


I have :

* checked IIS is running ok (I can open and run ASP pages ok).
* checked my user is in the VS Developers Group
* run aspnet_regiis -i in the \windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.1.4322 folder
* loaded the latest vs updates
* iis has a default web site running on port 80
* I have tried disabling mcAfee person firewall - no difference
* I don't have Zone Alarm
* tried both with file share and fronpage sevrer extensions options
* checked the 'write' option in the default web site
* made sure user and the ASPNET user has permissions to wwwroot (do I need a wwwroot$ share?)
* tried substituting '127.0.0.1' for 'localhost' in the new project name


PLEASE HELP!!!

Nightmare, sounds like your missing one of the prerequisites. Did you have IIS installed when you loaded VS? I'd try reinstalling it.

I had this exact same problem....and the solution lied in the permissions for the directory on the web server. Make sure your directory is set to share.


hope that helps...
