I had the same problem as u had. i reinstalled my IIS and it worked fine. Also for the error,
"unable to start debugging on the web server. access is denied"

after u reinstall the IIS, right click the project and say create the application and then run the application.

Hope you understood.

Thanks and regards


thankz exelio for da reply
ok i've formatted my pc & its working ie the localhost. bt only on IE, when i try in firefox it asks for authentication,username & password!... i cud'nt understand which id/pass its asking for....any help


I am not sure why u r being prompted for userid and password in mozilla.see if authentication mode is set on in the options for mozilla
and try again.

Thanks and regards


authentication mode...now where is that in mozilla? i've looked at tools>>options...but in vain!

Go to Control panels -> Administrative tools -> Internet information services, and browse to your application folder. right click it -> properties -> directory security tab -> click the upper edit button -> ensure yourself that only checkbox checked is 'integrated windows authentication'

Try this and see if it works.

Thanks and regards
