Default Can not create virtual directory for Ch 16 folder

Can not create virtual directory for HelloWorld folder of Chap. 16, either from IIS manager or VS 2005 Solution Explorer. The message indicated that the access was denied. The OK button on the "Browse for folder" window was deactivated.

Working this example on another computer was completed without any problem. What might be the reason for "access denied"? 'Read-only' box was activated. This should not be a problem, right?

TIA,
Jeffrey

Just solved the problem by moving the VBnet file folder from 'My Documents' network drive to local C:\.

We ran into the same thing, I assume you were using XP?

I believe it's a permissions issue when it's not located on the same drive. You could have changed the folder permissions on the network folder but that could potentially have security implications.
