ASP.Net Create New Web Application Error

I want to create a new ASP.Net web project. After I clicked OK in the new project window, Visual Studio asked to provide a share path to open the project. However, after I clicked OK, it displays an error message saying:

"The item 'Webform1.aspx' does not exist in the project directory. It may have been moved, renamed, or deleted."

The project itself is created, but when I double-click Webform1.aspx or when I add a new web form, Visual Studio won't display the webform and shows the same error message.

I suspect it has something to do with NTFS/IIS Permission. I'm new in ASP.Net so I don't know much about it.

I run IIS 5.1 with .Net framework 1.1. In IIS, my project folder exists as a Server Extension.

It has Script Source Access, Read, Write, and Directory Browsing permissions. The execute permission is: Scripts only and the Application Protection is Medium (Pooled).
In Directory Security > Authentication Methods, I disabled Anonymous access as well as digest authentication and basic authentication. Integrated Windows Authentication is still checked.

My NTFS permission:
Adminstrators > Full Control
ASPNET > Read & Execute + List Folder Contents + Read
CREATOR OWNER > No checbox is checked (everytime I want to add a permission and click OK, XP does not allow since it always unchecks every permission for this username)
My_UserName > Full Control
IWAM_machineName > Read & Execute + List Folder Contents + Read
System > Full Control

I am the administrator of this PC, I want to let everyone view the page but the only person that has Full Control is me.

How can I do this? Thanks experts for your help!

Ok try registering asp.net components again with this

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe

aspnet_regiis.exe -i

The following command installs the script maps pointing to the ASP.NET version associated with Aspnet_regiis.exe to the SampleApp1 application and all its sub-applications.

Aspnet_regiis -s W3SVC/1/ROOT/SampleApp1

lets see if anything works

Ryerras, thanks for the reply. I just created a project named: project, located in: http://localhost/project

These are the files that were created:
project.vbproj
project.vbproj.webinfo
AssemblyInfo.vb
Global.asax
Styles.css
Web.config
Webform1.aspx
(and an empty bin directory)

As you suggested, I have re-registered asp.net components and tried to install script maps: aspnet_regiis.exe -s localhost/project

But, it gave me error message:
Start registering ASP.NET scriptmap (1.1.4322.0) recursively at localhost/project/project.vbproj. Installation stopped because the specified path (localhost/project/project.vbproj) is not a valid web application.

I also tried to open Webform1.aspx in IE, but it gave me error message:

Server Error in '/project' Application.

The folder ("project" in your case) must be configured as a web
application in Internet Information Server. To check this, open the Internet
Services Manager, right-click on the folder and select Properties. Make sure
there is an application name listed, if not click "Create".

I saw the project name there.

Now now, I don't know what was happening (since I had tried this before), but I removed the folder, then I re-add it and suddenly it works.

Thanks anyways for your service. Point is granted
