You say you created a "virtual website" on IIS 7.0.  You can create a virtual folder, or a Web application; I'm assuming you created the former.

You need to validate that the base directory for the website is present.  IIS does not create directories, it expects you to.  You should have been informed during construction of the site that the directory was invalid or inaccessible.  Highlight the website in IIS Manager and click on Basic Settings (which should be on the right-hand side of the window); when Basic Settings comes up, select  Test settings and report any errors that come up, or tell us it was successful.  Then we can proceed to the next step, which is to analyze your code to see what other directories you are accessing and if any of them aren't actually present.

How did you create the virtual directory?

Yes, the obvious question is "Did you create the complete directory structure?"  This would include folders that are empty, but which your code expects to be present.
