Basically, InterDev expects that your working directly on the files on a Web server and using something like SourceSafe to manage file revisions.  Your options are to download and setup a local web server (PWS, Apache, etc...), target the master server, or just use InterDev to create single files instead of a project.  Are you working on a project that utilizes server-side coding? If so, I recommend setting up a server (even if it's on your local machine), using it for development and then deploying the pages to the master.production server.  If not, just develop the site creating one file at a time (a project is not necessary).

More likely the answer is that your Server does not have the Server Extentions loaded. These extentions are the same as Front Page Extentions. I do know if you load the latest Front Page Extentions, Interdev will work with them.

Good Luck

InterDev, like Macromedia's UltraDev or Allaire's Cold Fusion, expect you to have a web server of some sort available to you, as tewald says. For development purposes, a lot of people will use Microsoft's Personal Web Server (PWS), which is part of the NT 4 Option Pack, and is the same download as if you were going to install a full-blown NT server as a Web Server. The main difference is that PWS is intended to be a development tool, so you don't have FTP (file transfer) or SMTP (Send mail) capabilities, but otherwise it works just like a regular IIS server. You also won't have the configuration or security issues you'd otherwise have... but as I said, it's a DEVELOPMENT tool, not server software.

InterDev wants to create Active Server Pages... so you need server software. PWS will work just fine for development in most cases -- in fact, I've never loaded extensions.

Microsoft's PWS for Win95/98/NT is available at http://www.microsoft.com/TechNet/winnt/Winntas/technote/nt4optov.asp

It's free.
