VS.NET Web App messing up form authentication? Help, please?

Does anyone know of any problems with creating a VS.NET Web App in a forms authenticated subfolder?  I created a Web App "pics" with VS.NET as a subfolder of wwwroot, and the Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER") is always blank on all the pages in this subfolder wwwroot/pics.  I deleted the VS.NET premade Web.Config file so that there is only the one file at wwwroot, but that didn’t help.    Are there any other files created by VS.NET that could be messing this up?  I made other ASPX subfolders outside of VS.NET and they all continue the session just fine, it's like this VS.NET configured subfolder doesn't recognize the session state or is restarting the session, and I can't figure out where this is happening.

Here is my web.config file:
<customErrors mode="Off"/>
<compilation defaultLanguage="vb" debug="true" />
<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms loginUrl="http://www.robneff.net/default.aspx" name=".AUTHASPX" protection="All" timeout="15" path="/" />
<allow users="*,?"/>
IF I add the below section to web.config, and when I click any links to content in the VS.NET folder, I am routed back to “wwwroot/default.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fpics/%2fVSNETCreated.aspx” where /pics/VSNETCreated.aspx was the page I requested. This is expected, except it again shows again that my Authentication variable isn’t being carried into the subfolder pics.
<location path="pics">
<deny users="?"/>
Thanks for any suggestions. Remember, my login page is working, and I can create aspx files and subfolders outside of VS.NET where Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER") shows up correctly. It's just I need to use VS.NET

The problem was the subfolder was configured as an Application.  Thus when IE tried to enter this folder, it was creating new blank Application variables to replace the Default web site Application variables, including Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER").

So in summary, the root "login folder" should be the only folder configured to run as an Application unless you want to have multiple logins (and drive users crazy).

Session State in VS.Net
Hi.. I have an ASP background with very little VB. I'm trying to integrate a transactional app into DotNetNuke. The trans app uses session state to verify userid. I dont want to change all the code in the trans. app so I thought updating the following code to include Session("UID") = userId in signin.ascs.vb would do the trick but it doesnt appear to be storing the userid into state. Does anyone know what the problem might be ? If blnLogin Then ' Attempt to Validate User Credentials Dim userId As Integer = objSecurity.UserLogin(txtUsername.Text, txtPassword.Text, _p...

Desperate Visual Studio .NET problem with Web Forms, please help
Hi, I've posted in the past about this problem and got no response, but now I'm desperate so have to try again. In Visual Studio .NET 2003, with .NET Framework 1.1, all web form controls (in fact all controls in the toolbar) are disabled. I create a webform.aspx page, I am in design view, but when I go to the "web forms" toolbar, I cannot drag anything to the page. I solved this last time by completely wiping my drive and spending three days reinstalling and updating everything. Everything in Visual Studio worked as expected for a few days, and now yet again everything is disabled. Can s...

convert the web application from vs.net 2002 to vs.net 2003
hi how can i convert the web application from vs.net 2002 to vs.net 2003 and how i know that the application is made in vs.net 2002 and not in vs.net 2003 and thank for your time VS.NEt 2003 detects 2002 project format automatically when you try to open 2002 project with it. It also asks you if the project needs to be converted into 2003 format (if I remember right conversion must be done to use the project in 2003). If you say yes, it does the conversion and you don't have to do anything. Note that VS.NEt 2002 can't open 2003 projects.Thanks,Teemu KeiskiFinland, EU thank you for your...

Implementing .Net Form into an APS.net web form, can this be done
I am new here, but have been searching for a while, and may not have the correct lingo to find what I am looking for.  I am tasked with implementing a .exe application that was writen vb6 then converted to .net into a new website my team is developing. The idea is to put each of the 3 different forms in this .exe application of 3 different .aspx pages. I have attempted multiple things to get this into the page and even started to just rewrite it as an ASP.net web form, but even then I can't reuse any of the code since the System.Web.UI.Page doesn't inherit the sa...
