Web page returns "The page cannot be found" in IIS 5

P: 57
I have a web page that I installed to IIS 6.0 from a web deployment project successfully.

I am trying to deploy the same application to laptops that are running IIS 5.0. I am getting an error "the page cannot be found". My virtual directory is setup correctly (at least in the same manner as per iis 6).

I dont see a tab for web service extentions. I cannot browse from IIS either, I get the same error, even if I browse to an htm file.

What have I not turned on.

i do get iisstart.asp to work if i browse to http://localhost/
i am required to run ie 6.0

i respelled my application name from something.1 to something1. the application now starts. Does IIS have a dislike for .'s?

Well here is another question, has anyone used the file-types-on-target-machine to assign .vs files?

I believe that you are right, IIS does not like . in virtual directory names. Here is an article that may help:
