IIS HTTP 403.1 Forbidden: Execute Access Forbidden

Hi all,
When creating a virtual directory in IIS 5.0 win xp Pro with the name like
"abc.com", an error HTTP 403.1 Forbidden: Execute Access Forbidden will
return when accessing the web page. But, this will work fine if the virtual
directory is named in "abc.com.sg" or others. Why it can't be created with
the name "xxxxxx.com"??

Thanks & Best Regards,

Edward

Virtual dirs with names ending in *.com work fine here, what does the whole
URL look like?

How are you creating the virtual directory? It almost sounds like you are
doing it from a visual studio environment by the way you explain the Execute
Forbidden error ?
