Could you please tell why I am getting this error message

---------------------------
Microsoft Development Environment
---------------------------
Unable to get the project file from the Web server. Visual Studio .NET cannot create or open the application. The likeliest problem is that required components are not installed on the local Web server. Run Visual Studio .NET setup and add the Web Development component.

Hi davelalande,

> Run Visual Studio .NET setup and add the Web Development component
This is a component of Visual Studio. Apparently this had not been installed during your initial installation. Run the setup again and install it. That should get rid of the error.

Cheers!

Do not choose typical install, choose full install .. Alternatively choose custom installation and select this component manually.

Poping in the CD after installation should also give you an option for installing specific components

Is this a project that you downloaded? If yes, then your project and solution settings might not be the same as that in the downloaded project.

Hi,

It looks like a path problem to me. Check the project paths as well the path for the installation of visual studio.

Hello,

I have found the problem, where the things went wrong, I had installed ISAPI, ISAPI_Rewrite is a utility which is required for one of my projects here but due to this I was unable to load any project from Visula Studio,
Please help me if you have any idea, how to run both, without clashing.

Thanks in advance

Since you found the cause, it would be much better to close this question and ask the new one in a different thread. That way, the experts who know the solution but had skipped over the original question will get to see it too.
