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.

yes it is checked. looking around on the web for any other ideas...I am sure it is something simple...could it be an issue with me having asp.net 2.0 and 3.5 on this same machine?

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
