I hope I'm just doing something stupid here but... I'm trying to import a web which uses ASP into Front Page using the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\MyCoolWeb directory. When I do, I get an error message:

       Unable to create a disk-based web at "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\MyCoolWeb"
       because its parent web would not be a disk-based web elsewhere, outside
       of your web server's document hierarchy.

It works fine importing to another directory, but then I have to move the files into C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\MyCoolWeb in order to test the ASP code. How do I set up a project inder C:\Inetpub\wwwroot?

Hi.

I get that error message too.  Here is my work around.

Put your web wherever you want it. I usually put it in the wwwroot folder.

Then, open your PWS (double-click from the system tray) Go to the advanced tab and add a new Virtual Directory.  Just browse to the folder you saved it in and give it a name. Make sure you enable execute too.

Now you can test your asp directly with http://127.0.0.1/yourwebname

I guess it boils down to making sure that in your PWS your home directory is set to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot and execute is also enabled.

I'm using IIS but it seems to be essentially the same concept as PWS. Seems as long as the virtual directory is set correctly, everything's great.

Thanks for the help!
