#include VIRTUAL=????

I am creating a new project on machine and would like to use personal webserver for development.  I am going to develop an existing application ( from another server ) on my local machine.  I created a new application with InterDev and added all the asp and HTML pages to it.  There are multiple directories under this project and there are some files in the root directory, which are included as "VIRTUAL=/<my file name>.asp".  Now, when InterDev moves these files to the personal webserver, it puts them under a directory, (my project name) which is not the root or what the "VIRTUAL=\" was pointing to.  I can only resolve this by moving all my files to the root directory of Personal Webserver(inetpub\wwwroot).  Would you please tell me how I can get around this problem?  I cannot change the VIRTUAL=\<file name> to file=\<file name> because all these files should be run on the same original server again.
