I've just installed several things to test my web page locally before putting it on my host provider.
(IIS, MS Visual Studio 2005 Std, SQL Server Express 2005, .Net Framework 3).  I'm running IIS on Win XP Pro SP2

I've setuped the directory security in IIS (anonymous access is checked, integrated windows authentication is unchecked, and it use the user IUSR_MyMachine).

Each time i access the localhost or 127.0.0.1, i get this error:
"an unhandled exception ('Permission denied: 'Get Object'') occured in inetinfo.exe [12308]"
and the Studio JIT debugger ask me if i want to start  a debugger.

the error code is not always the same.

I've checked the Event Viewer and there's nothing about this error.

Any idea?  

Thanks

I've did a search on MS Support web site, and found this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/255650/en-us.
So according to that document, i should NOT change the permission for the localstart.asp file.  So i've placed it back as it was setuped after installation of IIS and restarted it.

Typing 127.0.0.1 was constantly bugging me with credential, so i typed "mymachine\myuser" then my password... but even if my user have the admin rights, it was not working.

So i tried typing localhost instead of 127.0.0.1, and bingo, i see the IIS default page.

But i don't understand why i'm getting this problem because 127.0.0.1 figure in my hosts file.

Anyone have an idea why it's doing this?

Thanks

I am assuming you are using ASP or some other server side code? If so, this seems to be an issue with the IIS Anonymous account trying to call an object when the code runs... it can't as the anon account isn't allowed.

This could be a FileSystemObject or something similar. Check the code for object creation and start looking there.

Another thing... ensure that the object it is calling actually exists on the machine. It could be looking for something like CDONTS which you probably wont have on there... I say CDONTS but it could be something else (you get the idea)

As i said, i have no idea.  It's a fresh install of IIS... so it's the default page of IIS (localstart.asp).
I didn't checked in it to see what kind of code it is.. server or not.  I'm quite new with ASP & .NET.
