vs 2005 and 2003 on the same machine

P: n/a
We have VS 2005 on our virtual machine and it has been working fine. I
recently installed VS 2003 same machine. Problem is I can’t create any web
project using VS 2003. It gave me the error saying “Unable to create Web
project. The file path ‘C:\Inetput\wwwroot\WebApplication1’ does not
correspond to the URL: ‘http://localhost/Application1’. The two need to map
to the same location. HTTP Error 404:”.

Can some body please tell me what to do to take care of this problem?

Thanks.

Go back in time and install VS2003 first? VS2005 knows how not to break
VS2003, but VS2003 does not have a good enough crystal ball to know how not
to break VS2005...

Sorry for being facetious in my answer, but thet is really the gist of the
matter, VS2003 cannot possibly know how to not break VS2005. I would
uninstall VS2003 first, then VS2005... Then I would install VS2003, then I
would spend some time making sure it works... L:astly, I would install
VS2005 and hope that it all works.

If anything does not work, I would do a re-install of the machine, starting
from putting Windows on a reformatted drive.

But that's just me, I do not like spending time fixing existing installs, I
get much better results starting from scratch...
