asp.net uses a local webserver, and creates temp files to run. on my box, it creates the webserver from scratch

a console app needs no webserver , nor temp files other than in the bin folder below your code.

You don't need special write privileges to C:\.. There must be something misconfigured.
Normally VS starts its own IIS instance for the project.

So the questions are: How is your project setup? What kind of ASP.NET application?
