Can't do ASP.NET projects, even though I have IIS installed (says ASP.NET isn't installed on the web server)


I recently upgraded my computer at home to Windows XP professional (for IIS) so I could practice building ASP.NET applications, but whenever I try to start a new ASP.NET project I get errors saying something along the lines of "ASP.NET 1.1 is not currently configured or installed on the web server" I made sure IIS was running (made sure the default page was running) but nothing.

A friend just told me that it's because I installed the .net framework before I installed IIS... is this true?  can I remedy this without having to uninstall/reinstall .net and IIS?

c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Did u install Framework 2.0 beta? If u did, go to your application's properties on iis manager, in the ASP.NET tab, select the proper ASP.NET version.
As you know two main versions of Framework can be hosted on the machine at the same time, bu t of course you have to select which you want for your web application.
