IIS7?

If you right click on the project nad go to properties . . . are you trying to use your local IIS (custom) or the one in visual studios (default)?

Try creating an application (iis7) or virtual directory (iis6)  in your IIS.

Hi gjfranco,

since you are beginning in ASP.NET I will assume you did not tinker too much with default configuration settings. The error you have looks like what would happen if you do backups of your projects by just copy-pasting them in the same directory as the website you are trying to run or in a directory listed in your Visual Studio 's project folder. If this is the case than IIS will get confused by finding multiple applications and not knowing which one to instantiate.

Can you give us some details about the file structure of the project you are running ? maybe do a few screenshots of your project's folder as well as your IIS setup?
