Hi,

I recently created aspx pages in Visual Web Developer 2005 Express and everything works fine in my VWD enviroment but when I try to open the pages outside the development area, in IE, I get the following error: Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet...

I have put copies of my files into the wwwroot folder, so that I can test on my local PC and accross our intranet,
but I end up with above error.

How can I solve this?
This is my first attempt at this so I'm totally a newby... Please help.

Thank you in advance.

Sorry for late reply

Try this, in iis, view property of Default Web Site,
and Under Directory Security Tab

Click Edit button for anonyous access, Check button for anonyous access should be checked, and User Name should be current account you are using, or create a account that have rights to read and write vitual diretory folder.

Hope it will help
