Vista + IIS 7 + Webapps not starting - blank screen

I've got VS2005 running on Vista.
In my WebApp I have configured it to run using IIS and have let VS2005
create the virtual directory
I have installed II6 Management compatibility software as per instruction
found on Scott Gu's blog.
I'm starting VS2005 as 'Administrator'
When pressing F5, an empty page is shown (URL is correct though), also tried
setting a breakpoint in PageLoad but it doesn't seem to get there...
Even a new WebApp with no code, just a few controls on the page results in
the following HTML:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html;
charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>
<BODY></BODY>
<META content=FUGCLQU RCL name=SKYPE_FRAM EID></HTML>
Any ideas / pointers as to how to solve this ?

TIA,
Jurjen

It seems that after creating the virtual directory from VS-2005 you have to
enable 'Windows Authentication' (and possibly Forms Auth) on the Virtual
Directory in IIS manager.

I tried installing my VS2005 Pro on Vista Ultimate 32 bit RTM today and got errors stating that VS2005 was not compatible with Vista. Microsoft......please pull your finger out of my ass and tell me this is a joke. It must be a joke....because I also have read that VS2002 and VS2003 will not be supported on Vista. This clearly violates Microsoft's own terms of support for these products.

I install Visual Studio 2005 Pro on Vista. I open and migrate a 2003 web project to 2005. I attempt to browse an aspx file from the Solution Exploer. It displays a blank html page. I create a master page with 3 content placeholders. I create a WebForm that uses the master and then browse it to have a look. I get an empty html page. I change from the IIS to the internal server. No change. Only displays blank page.

I posted about this problem over 12 months ago and even after Vista SP1 the problem still exists when running an Access database (A2003 and A2007 tested) under Vista. A workaround was suggested by another group member at that time, but it's hardly ideal. MS should really look at this and fix it. When a form containing a chart is opened the chart object is visible, but no chart data is visible. If any other form is opened over the top...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
