.NET 1.1 is not installed on machines running IIS7.
Please read the following guide to setup .net 1.1 on the machine

I already have dot net 1.1 installed on my 2008 server and the app pool works because I can create a virtual and host one.  But  when I try to open the project to code, it comes up with the error above.

hi,

Try these and report back.

1. Disable IE "Friendly HTTP Error Messages"
Go to “Tools > Internet Options”, choose the Advanced tab, and clear the “Show friendly HTTP error messages” checkbox.  Then, close the browser, open it again, and re-request the page.

2. Detailed error logging
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/267/how-to-use-http-detailed-errors-in-iis-70/
Try the following. From IIS Management, selecting your website/application/virtual directory in the left-hand tree view, clicking on the “Error Pages” icon, clicking “Edit Feature Settings” action, and then selecting “Detailed Errors”.

3. Failed Request Tracing
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/266/troubleshooting-failed-requests-using-tracing-in-iis-7/
Requires - Tracing (under World Wide Web Services - Health and Diagnostics - Tracing)

4. Comfirm that you are runing the appPool in CLASSIC MODE and not INTEGRATED.

Hope it helps us diagnose further. Let us know.

Cheers,

yes, I loaded vs 2003 and net 1.1 on the 2008 server and I can create VD's and host an 1.1 app, but as soon as I try to open one I get that error, I even tried opening the solution on the server and got another error that the file location does not resolve to the localhost file location????

Option 1,
Did nto do anything for me, turned this off but error still showed in VS 2003.

Option 2
Did not affect me trying to open a project form the new web share location in my 2008 server, still got the error

Option 3
Same as 2

Option 4
Chekced and rechecked this boefore I posted, this message, wnated to make sure that I could host 1.1 apps, which it will.  the real problem exists when tryting to open a solution with projects in SV 2003.  It opens the projects from the old file location, I delete them out and try to add from the new file location on the 2008 web server file share and it gives me the error, when I try to open locally on the server it gives me another error as well.

Ok, did this but did not find any files that referenced any of this information.

I did open the vbproj.webinfo file and it had the old location of the file in here., I am wondering if I get rid of this file or change the location if it will open properly in the new location of the file.

ALL,

Just for clarification,  what I have having trouble with is that I created a new web server with win 2008 and iis7, did all stuff to get 1.1 working on it.  I copied over all my project files to a new diretory location from my old server, but when I go into VS 2003 and try to open these projects fromt eh new location thats when I get the error above.

It sounds like you are trying to work with your .Net 1.1 applications on IIS 7.0 using Visual Studio 2003 or Visual Studio 2005.

Visual Studio 2003 and 2005 used FrontPage Server Extensions to publish Web Projects to IIS 6.0

To create Web projects, both Internet Information Services (IIS) and FrontPage Server Extensions (FPSE) must be installed and configured.

from

Web project requirements for Visual Studio .NET or Visual Studio 2005 development
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/312073

When Microsoft created IIS 7.0 they did not add FrontPage Server Extensions. So they are not part of the default installation.

To install FrontPage Server Extensions you need to download them separately and install them.

Microsoft realizes that the FrontPage Server Extensions are essential to many Web hosting companies and developers, and has worked with Ready-to-Run Software to release a version of the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions (FPSE 2002) for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. This version of FPSE 2002 is available for x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 as a separate download for IIS 7.0

from

Installing the FrontPage Server Extensions on IIS 7.0
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/134/installing-the-frontpage-server-extensions-on-iis-70/

The above website has instructions for installing the FrontPage Server Extensions on IIS 7.0

Also you can download them here

All,

The solution came down to permissions and not being able to open the folders to the shares where the files where being kept.  The est I had already installed. VS 2003, FPSE, dotnet 1.1 and all SP's.
