Setting up Visual Web Developer Express & IIS 7 on Vista.

Default setting will not let me create a new website at localhost.  

I attempt to configure server extensions but i am new to vista and cannot locate the task option.

How can i install the extensions so that iis 7 works with visual studio?

thanks eddie

IIS is not installed by default in Vista.
This tells you how to install it:

I figured out the solution.  To and it is as follows:

The default IIS install does not suppoer .NET interoperability and must be explicitly enabled using the tree options during the setup process described uin vallis' post.

Once the setup is complete be sure to open VWDExpress in administrator mode (right click program icon and select 'run as administrator')

Then you will be able to create and maintain websites on your local machine.

Vallis, i forget the three specific check boxes to select during the install process.  They are necessary to ensure .NET works with VWDExpress.  If you would post them, i will give you the points.

Otherwise the process is described in this microsoft web movie: (and its a real snooze)
