I am getting the configuration error when trying to launch the Default.aspx after using the sitemappath control. I have copy and pasted the error message below. Please help me to make the necessary changes to make it work correctly. Thank you very much.

    This is an IIS configuration error. Basically the application hasn't been correctly figured as virtual directory or some part of it. I'd suggest checking out Appendix B which describes how to configure IIS and these two threads:




which go into a lot more detail on some of the issues you might encounter. I'm in the process of rewriting this appendix for the C# version of the book in light of all the issues that have since arisen. I will make it available online for people to download here too, as it's basically a "cross-language" appendix anyway.
