A copule things to check:

1) Is IIS running?
2) Did you install the Front Page Server Extensions?
3) Did you move a folder or a virtual directory?

#3 is your most likely problem.

Open the .sln in notepad and it will tell you where it's trying to find each of the projects.

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Not that I know of.
It would help if they gave more meaningful error messages.
Programming in assembler was more straightforward than this.

one thing I do get.When I try to open the ThePhile project I get unavailable in the title bar i.e. "The Phile(unavailable)"
The sln file refers to:
"http://localhost/ThePhile/ThePhile.csproj",
if I'm sharing the ThePhile directory shouldn't this refer to:
"http://localhost/ThePhile.csproj"

My Visual studio .NET is 2002.
Could this be the problem?

VS 2002 isn't a problem because this site was designed with that version.

The http path is correct because "ThePhile" should be a virtual directory on your web site. You should check the IIS administration applet to see if it is correctly set up as a virtual directory.

Eric,
I tried checking this.I'd appreciate it if you could tell me where the applet is.Internet Information Services in Control Panel.Web Sites=>Default Web site.
Then I add the virtual directory here. Doesnt seem to work.
Maybe I need ASP.NET website development for dummes. :o)

You should already see it listed as a virtual directory once you drill down from the default web site. If you don't see it, then you didn't set it up right.

If you have Win XP, it's easiest to turn it into a virtual directory by using Windows Explorer. Right click on ThePhile directory, properties, Web Sharing tab, select "share this folder", accept the defaults and click OK.

Then go into your IIS applet again and drill down from the web site. You should see this as a virtual directory. Select it, right click, properties. Look to see if you have the button that says CREATE in the Application Settings area. If you see the CREATE button, that means this is not configured to be an IIS Application directory. Just push that button to turn it into an IIS application directory. This allows the "bin" folder under ThePhile to be the "main" bin folder of the application, and the web.config will be the main config file.

If you don't have much experience with ASP.NET this project might be a bit over your head. They make some assmptions about the readers background ...

You can say that again.Unfortunately ASP .NET is the only type of development that employers are interested in.
I removed the virtual dir and recreated it in the IIS applet.
The bin folder under ThePhile is empty?Should it be?I dont think so.
