Default Help Please! IIS Metabase Problem..

I am trying to run a website from Visual Web Developer(VWD) using IIS instead of "CASSINI" the integrated web server, but I am getting this error message.I know I have both ASP 1.1 and 2.0 installed on machine, but this is the first time I am trying to use IIS with ASP2.0(ie VWD).I have been using it with ASP1.1(VS 2003) without any problem. Configuration problem perhaps!Please help a newbie!!!Thanks
