<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="blah.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default" %>
-^

Now I know that the syntax is correct because I can launch the page fine from Visual studio. Any ideas?Thank you for your time

You can create virtual directory with application in your IIS.

"A name was started with an invalid character. Error processing resource 'http://localhost/OneLove/Login.aspx'. Line 1, Pos..."

i'm trying to deploy the Website in a iis 5.1
