Default Object Reference not set... but where???

I followed the instructions, added the module to a new form. I do NOT get a display like the on ein figure 9-8 (page 149)

When I click on settings I get a message that says:
A critical error has occurred.
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

That's it, that is all I get. No Exception information. No clue as to where this error is occuring.

I still think this is an IIS issue. I am running on XP Pro, in VS 2010.

in the project web settings:
Specific page is set to http://localhost/dnndev

Use Local IIS Web server is clicked
set to http://localhost/dnndev/DesktopModules/Guestbook

(the book says to set it to http://localhost/dnndev but it won't let me do that that because it is already set up by the dnndev website)

Any clue what I'm doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been at this for a week (only had the book 2 days) but my company is about to give up on DNN as a possible solution unless I can prove we CAN extend it using modules.

Thanks in advance,
Lou
