Hi Experts,
I am trying to create a deployment project under VS 2003 environment, which need to be deployed in Windows 2003 server later.  First thing I did was, I changed the configuration to Release mode.  After that please see the attachment, which shows what I did to Project  --> Copy Project and got the following error message.  Do you have any idea what is going on here?  Why doen't it let me create Copy of the project?

Error Message during Copy
An error occured while copying the project "http://localhost/ProjectName Visual Studio .NET has detected the specified web server is not running ASP.NET version 1.1.  You will be unable to run ASP.NET Web applications and services.

    You need to install Frontpage server extensions.

    Hi informaniac,
    Thank you for your help.  I did install Frontpage Server Extensions and exited from Visual Studio.  After that I reloaded Visual Studio and tried to Copy Project again, got the exact same error message.  Please let me know if you have any other thought.  Thank you.

    Have you looked into that? For ASP.NET 1.1, you need to run the aspnet_regiis -i command in framework folder.

    Hi CodeCruiser,
    Thank you for your help.  I ran aspnet_regiis -i under the framework folder and it worked.  Thank you again for your quick help.
