"Unable to start debug on web srv" - problem with sample asp.net a

Hello,

I downloaded a sample asp.net app (in C#). When I try to run it I get the
following error message"

"Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web
server. The project is not configured to be debugged.

Click Help for more information"

So I click on help which brings up a webpage that shows the Web.config file
and says to set debug=true. I look at the web.config file for this project
(the web.config file located in the same directory as the project) and debug
= true is already set. But I still get the same error message.

If I recreate the project as a new projec and copy all the stuff from the
old project, then it runs. What do I need to do to the original project that
I downloaded so that it runs? Recreating it is a hassel.

Thanks,
Rich

Well, actually, I re-copied the project to the webroot (where I copied the
original project) and now it starts up. BTW, I am using VS2003 SP4. I guess
this must be a quirk of some sort, but I have had this problem before. Hmmm
