  I moved my VS.NET project(CVCWeb) files folder from 'c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\CVCWeb' to 'c:\Intepub\wwwroot' so that I could view the project by just typing localhost. But now I can't open the project in VS.NET as the VS project file is looking for the folder called cvcweb. how do I change it so that the project opens up using the files that now reside in the wwwrooot folder???

Visual Studio.net doesn't support project files at that location.  You need to keep them where they are at if you want VS to be happy.  This is only for development though, in production, you can put the project anywhere you want.

no move it back to cvcweb and then create a index.html or default.html in the c:\inetpub\wwwroot


<script language="JavaScript">
location.href = "cvcweb\\default.aspx"

Suppose your project file is XXX.proj
Open file XXX.proj.webinfo
Change URLPath from http://localhost/XXX/XXX.proj to

to change default pages in IIS

    * Start "Internet Information Services Manager" and double click on the "WWW Service"
    * Change to the "Directories" tab
    * Type a list of pages that should be considered as default pages separated by commas (,) in the "Default Document" input box.
      Example: default.htm,default.html,index.html,home.htm

ok guys, here is how I think it can be done and I think it has worked for me.
Open the  XXXX.vbproj file and recompile the project. VS will ask you to create a .sln file in the same folder, create the file (overrides the previous file)
then close VS and open the project using teh .sln file and it should open properly.
What do guys think??
