gotta be a typo in the url or something missed.  did you try an iis reset after creating everything?

Post some screen shots and actual URLS so we can dive in.

If you don't have IIS installed then you cannot just use localhost. VS has its own server builtin, if the server is running then you can use that but you have to specify the port to use.
