I'm using VS.NET 2003 beta, with the 1.1-framework. Each time I'm trying to create a ASP.NET Webapplication I get the error "the web server reported the following error to create or open the Web project at the following URL: 'http//localhost/Webapplication1'. 'HTTP/1.1 500 Server error'"
I'm a complete newby when it comes to IIS.
Help would be greatly appreciated.

First, verify that IIS is actually up and running. Setings -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Services.  Verify that the IIS Admin and WWW Publishing services are started.

If so..., the next thing I would check are the System and Application event logs on your machine. There may be a error message in the event log that might help you solve the problem.

I do object! TheLearnedOne was friendly enough to respond to my question, but however, it did not solve my problem.
If I remember correctly (long time ago) the error occured because IIS was installed after the installation of VS.NET. Some extra tweaking was necessary to make it possible to run ASP.NET.
