Cannot Run Web App in Debug Mode

I am writing a simple web application using the .Net Framework 1.1 and VB
..Net. I have installed IIS on my development machine but when I try to run
the program in debug mode [F5] I get an "Unable to start debugging on the
web server" message. I have looked at the help articles that are referenced
and have checked out the stuff they mention but I still cannot figure out
why I can't run in debug mode. I suspect that this may have something to do
with SP2 ... I think I remember running another web app I wrote a year or so
ago in debug mode ... before I installed SP2. Does anyone have a suggestion
for what I should look at to solve this problem?

Thanks very much.

Maybe these articles help you to find a solution:

Fripper,

Mostly is this a security option because the fact that ASPNET is running by
the ASPNET account which has limited autorisation and you start while
debugging a browser part.

One of the things you can do to test is try if you can run the page in your
browser.

I hope this helps?

Been there ,,,

:-)

you need to install the server components on the server ,,, insert the
Visual Studio DVD when the menu starts you will see below the normall
options in text "install server components" ( or something simular )

You need to install these on the webserver ,, the rights should all be
handled by the frontpage server extensions ( make sure you are in the
administrator or author`s list of the web , in frontpage )

one word of caution !!!!!
debuging works great , you can step through the code as if it was a normall
application etc etc however never ever use it on a production machine , as
it freezes all other requests when you are in break mode
