in the File MiWebProject.vbproj.webinfo  change the attribute:
<Web URLPath = "http://localhost/NameOfSharedFolder/MiWebProject.Web.vbproj" />

You must Share your folder where is located you files:
Right Click on the folder to shared -> Shared and Security -> Web Sharing -> Share this folder -> Must be the same name of the URLpath "NameOfSharedFolder"

Good Luck

you can copy your project to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot folder, and then with de IIS, open de "Default Web Page" and then right click on your project -> Properties and then Create a new web project.

I hope this could help you :)

In the Virtual Directory Tab, in the Application Configuration part, next to "Application Name", if the text box is disabled, the button will have the text: "Create"
