Deploying existing app on a different machine?

P: n/a
I have a web application already built (by someone else), and I'm moving the
source to my machine to start work on it. However, whenever I try to open
it, I get either one of two errors - "Unable to get project file from web
server", or "path 'http://localhost:/' does not correspond to blah blah".
Any one know why this is happening? Do I have to put the project files and
the source in a specific path, or under inetpub to get it to open?

Thoughts, etc.

You can place the web app in one of your local folders. But before you open
it, make sure you turn the folder containing the project as a "virtual
folder" in IIS. If it happens to be running in the root, then you'll have
to either change the Default Web Site's home directory or add the files to
inetpub\wwwroot. When you've done this, you may open the project.

If the "*.sln" file barks at you that it still can't find it, chances are
the "path" is different from the setting in the sln file. Go read it with a
text editor and make sure you configure the proper virtual directory in IIS
and your files are properly located there.
Best bet is to check the sln file to see the proper configuration.
