Unable to debug in Visual Studio 2005 - Debugging failed because integrated Windows Authentication is not enabled

I am building a web app and just turned on debuging in my webconfig.  When I execute the app, it gives me the following error message.

Unable to start degbugging on the we server.  Debugging failed because integrated Windows authentication is not enabled.

I tried putting the ASPNET user in the Debugger User group.  This did not help.

Any ideas is greatly appreciated.

Found it...

Under Control Panel....Administrative Tools....open up IIS

Right-click on the Default Web Site (in my case) and choose Properties.

When the Properties dialog opens...go to the Directory Security tab.

There is a section on this tab at the top called Anonymous Access and authentication control.....choose Edit...

at the bottom click on the check box for Integrated Windows Authentication.

Say "OK" to get back out (apply the change you just made).....the next time you run the page it should work.....no error message.

No problem.  I pay monthly for my account so the points are not a big deal.  The money I pay is WELL worth it.
