I am working on a new web project (C#), it runs just fine on my PC when I have the project's properties set to Use Visual Studio Development Server.   But when I try to change it to 'Use IIS Web Server' and I specify a project Url...I get 'Unable to start debugging on the web server.  The web server is not configured correctly.'  I have checked to be sure it created the virual directory, etc...

set debug ="false" in web.config as well as page itself
or
Check Integrated windows authentication in website properties >> security >> directory security.

goto windows explorer
navigate to your project folder >> properties
give aspnet user to full control permission.

I went to IIS, did properties on my virtual directory...I don't see a ASP.net tab. Only Virtual Directory, Documents, Directory Security, HTTP Headers, and Custom Errors
