Environment: ASP.NET 1.1; VS.NET Enterprise 2003; Windows Server 2003; IIS 6.0
I hope somebody can help me figure this out. I created a Web project on my XP Dev machine which I can open, run, debug and do everything else. I can "deploy" the project to my 2003 server and open the site in explorer browser. But now, I want to transfer the whole solution to my Win 2003 and continue the development and testing on it. So, I transferred the whole VS solution directory from my XP machine to the Win 2003 machine. I created a Web site (not a virtual directory under default website) on my IIS, designated the home directory as the physical dictory where my VS.NET solution and the web project is located. I also have VS.NET installed on the server machine. Can somebody please tell me how I can open my VS solution and the web project in VS.NET, edit and run it under debugger? I have tried everything I know but VS.NET refuses to open the web project asking me to choose a different file share.
I suspect that the problem could be that VS.NET tries to open a web project from http://localhost. But since my copied project is not on 'localhost' but under a "Website" that is not a "Default Website". I don't know how to fix this problem. Any advice anybody?
