Default Problem running app with ASP.NET


         I am new to ASP.NET programming. I have installed IIS and it is running . When i try to run my application i am getting an error stating

""Unable to create Web Project ‘WebApplication1’. Could not find a web server at ‘localhost’ on port 80. Please check to make sure that the web server name is valid and your proxy settings are set correctly. If you are sure that everything is correct, the web server may be temporarily out of service”.

Can any body please tell me what is going wrong and sugest the solution to me ....

Thanks in advance

You can try these ...

1. Make sure that the server is running.
       To do this open Internet Service Manager and click Default Web Site. The Play button on the toolbar must be disabled. and pause - stop buttons enabled.

2. The home directory for your default website should be <Host Drive>:\inetpub\wwwroot

3. Goto Administrative Tools\Computer Management\Local Users and Groups\Users. Check that the any of the accounts viz... ASPNET, IUSR_<ComputerName>,IWAM_<ComputerName> are not disabled or locked. Right click on them and access the properties.

4. You can also run aspnet_regiis.exe found in the <windir>\microsoft.net\framework\<version>\ folder to set up asp.net properly on iis.

hope this works for you
