Cant create Web Site project with 2005

I have just installed Visual Studio 2005 on my machine and when I try to create a Web Project I get the following error message -
"Unable to create the Web...Could not find a Web Server."
My machine is running XP Pro and has Visual Studio 2003 installed, ASP.Net 2 is installed.
2003 is working correctly and I can create a Web site with this.
I have set the ASP.Net version to 2 in the IIS properties.

Thanks

Is your website running? If you go to http://localhost  in Internet Explorer, do you get the Welcome to Windows XP Server Internet Services page?

I guess since you have already changed properties in IIS, you know where to find it. You should be able to stop/start/pause the website there.

IIS is running fine, I can use 2003 and if I create a .Net 2 web site manually then that runs ok as well. The problem would appear to be with Visual Studio 2005

You could always use the internal web server of Visual Studio 2005 for testing.

File >> New Web Site... then select "File System" as location.

Have you tried Opening a Web Site to see if it works that way:
File >> Open Web Site... >> Local IIS

I don't have IIS on my current machine, and it says "IIS is not installed on this computer". What does it say on your machine?

I just get the error message - "Unable to create the Web...Could not find a Web Server."
As I say, I know IIS is running ok, its just that 2005 doesn't think it is!

Did you try the "File System" option when creating the New Web Site? You don't have to have IIS installed if you choose that option. If you aren't going to run the web site on your machine for other than testing purposes, then that is definetely a good alternative.

PS.
I am not implying that you don't have IIS or that it isn't running, but the "File System" option might be worth a look.
If I recall correctly, the order in which applications that use IIS and IIS itself are installed, can sometimes cause the IIS configuration to either work straight away, or require additional configuring(might have been PHP and IIS).

Thanks for the reply. The current IIS configuration works fine for 2003 and I would like to get 2005 working with it also.
