Here's what I do to make it work:


1. Map a server path to a local drive letter on the dev machine. For example, I have \\192.168.2.20\inetpub mapped to x:\ where 192.168.2.20 is my server.

2. Create a folder called Webapplication1 in X:\wwwroot, so you end up with X:\wwwroot\Webapplication1
3. Create a new Web application and have it point to http://192.168.2.20/Webapplication1
4. VS.NET will show a dialog that allows you to browse for the files of the project. Browse to X:\wwwroot\Webapplication1 and click Open

If everything works as planned, VS.NET will create a new app at the specified location.
Cheers,

Imar
