I'm interested in a resolution for this problem also. I have a brand
new, clean development machine running XP Pro and SP2 with VS 2003 and
the latest .NET framework. I've tried every suggested resolution I
could find (opening up permissions, reinstalling IIS, etc) and nothing
has worked. New suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, to both. I am trying to create a new asp .net project, yes, I am using
front page extensions.
Any help is appreciated

Have you tried not using FrontPage extensions and, instead, using file-based permissions ?

Frontpage Server Extensions (FPSE) are no longer required for IIS web applications.

Visual Studio 2005 has built-in support for editing and updating remote web projects
using the standard File Transfer Protocol (FTP). You can connect to a remote Web site
using FTP within the New Web Site and Open Web Site dialog box.

Using the "Publish website" feature lets you deploy websites without FPSE.

I didn't read your original message saying you were
using VS 2003 because I have been away on a trip.

I assumed you were using VS 2005.

I was trying to help you, even if I missed your original post.
I'm beginning to be sorry I tried to.

OK, llevi.

I only thought that my reply was clearly marked
as referring to VS 2005 and not to VS 2003.

re:

Y un saludo devuelto, sincero de corazon!

Back to the point : you do need FP extensions to publish VS 2003 websites.

Maybe upgrading to VS 2005 would be in order,
if you want to publish websites without FP extensions.

If you don't have access to VS 2005, VWD 2005 is a good substitute.

VWD 2005 is free, this year, and so is the .Net Framework 2.0.

I would try uninstalling front page extensions and then reinstalling
them. A 500 error is probably something with the front page
extensions.

VS 2005), all is well, so far. Thanks for your help, and if you ever hear
about a solution to myy problem, please let me know.

Ok, I give up. After months of dealing with this problem, listening and
trying this and then that, and then the other, still NOTHING HAS WORKED! Are
you listening gurus? NOTHING HAS WORKED!. All you apologists for Microsoft
(and until today I was one of them) should read into this carefully: NOTHING
HAS WORKED!
Regardless of what you say, I should be able to , CLEANLY, remove and
re-install ANY software without sepending the better part of a year to no
avail. I challenge you all to come up with a DEFINITIVE answer. I doubt that
you can. At any rate, Good luck! Thanks to all for your help.

I had the same problem, but it was instantly solved when I got the
