I have successfully in the past been running projects from Visual studio 2005 team edition on external a usb drive and configuring IIs vitual directory to point to the ASP.Net web application.
I am running windows XP and sql server express edition.
The first error I got was unexpected error 0x8ffe2740.
I found IIS was not starting on port 80.
I ran active ports and found kontiki ie sky player was using port 80.
I uninstalled skyplayer, re-configured IIS to run on port 80, set up new virtual directory on external usb drive. Setup new project in VS2005 and tried adding existing web via IIS to project.
The problem I now get is unable to open web http://localhost/dbaseWebData.
The web server does not appear to have the FrontPage server extensions installed.
I am at a bit of a loss, as to what to try next, thanks in advance for any help.

You don't need FP Extensions for a local web. Use ISM to make sure your Default web is running and is on port 80. Also that you have the dbaseWebData web as a virtual directory under Default. Check its propertiest that it is configured (you'll see the Remove button). Verify it is set to run scripts. Verify the directory is pointing to your folder on the USB drive.

I have just uninstalled re-sharper & visual Studio and will re-install later.
I also deleted all projects from IIS. Thank you for your suggestions.
Starting from scratch, I have set-up new folder D:\aaaWebaaa\dbaseWebData
Setup new virtual directory in IIS & checked permissions to read/write run scripts as suggested.
Also, checked IIS is running on port 80.
I have coppied back the project files without the *.sln for VS2005.
In browser ran http://localhost/dbaseWebData/app/users_edit.aspx?loginName=dbo
It runs the project and displays list of users from the database.
Before, with VS2005 it would not let me load project.
When VS2005 has finished uninstalling, I'll re-install and try creating new project in dbaseWebData folder. I'll let you know if it works ie. load & debug my project!
Did not have problems untill skyplayer was installed and took over port 80.
Thanks in advance.
