Publishing "Personal Web Site Starter Kit", Visual Web Developer 2005 on IIS 5.1 in Windows XP 2002 sp2

Dear IIS Gurus

I am trying to publish the "Personal Web Site Starter Kit" provided as an example with "Visual Web Developer 2005"  as a Virtual Directory on IIS 5.1.
I host IIS 5.1 on my development mashine running Windows XP professional 2002 with service pack 2.
On browsing the virtual directory I get the following error message:

"Server Application Unavailable

The web application you are attempting to access on this web server is currently unavailable.  Please hit the "Refresh" button in your web browser to retry your request.

Administrator Note: An error message detailing the cause of this specific request failure can be found in the application event log of the web server. Please review this log entry to discover what caused this error to occur."

The message in the error log is:

" - - [16/Aug/2005:09:47:04 +0200] "GET /test/Default.aspx HTTP/1.1" 500 1033"

I don't have the Foggiest Idea what that means.

I can view the website from the browser button inside Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 using the ASP.NET Development Server.
I successfully host an asp application in the virtual directory right next to virtual directory hosting aspx application.

How do I post the Web Site generated by the "Create a Personal Web Site" link on the Start Page of Visual Web Developer as a virtual directry on IIS 5.1?

"Visual Web Developer Web Server" and Web Services
I like the new "Visual Web Developer Web Server" (Do you want suggestions for a longer name!) but I have an issue with using it to host a Web Service. Whenever the Web Service is recompiled and run it ends up with a different port number. Therefore, it seems that any references to that WS in other applications are invalidated and need to be re-established when it's run again. Is there a way of pinning the port number, or am I missing something? CheersNick Grattan, MSDN Regional Director, Ireland. Software Paths Limited. Hi Nick, the internal server is used for local...

Can I change Personal web site starter kit to allow automatic role assignment as "Friend" to anyone logging in?
I have finally got my ASP.NET 2.0 web site (extended from the personal web site starter kit) developed in VS2005 in C# live on GoDaddy. GoDaddy does not currently allow remote access to their SQL data bases so Web Administration is a problem. Even if it wasn't, I would still like anyone logging in to my site to not require any authorization from the administrator (me) and to be automatically assigned the role of "Friend" giving them access to "private" albums and to several programs that require Request.IsAuthenticated as soon as they login. Does anyone know how this ...

Changing "virtual path" of Visual Web Developer Web Server
I'm developing a web application and want to avoid having to use a virtual path when executing the internal web server. Currently I have a web site named "website". When I start the web server it will automatically setup a server on some port e.g. 269 and with a virtual path of "website". So I'm able to access the site via: http://localhost:269/website However I would like to access it via this url instead: http://localhost:269/ and I can't see it should be a problem since the port is unique. I need this in order to use absolute paths in my HTML pages. ...
