Default Starting ASP .NET web applications

Also posted this message in an ASP .NET forum, but got a message back to say it was better off in this forum, so hope dsoemone can help!

I'm sure there is a blindlingly obvious answer to this one!

I am quite new to .NET. When I open start a new project and select ASP .NET web application the location box reads http://localhost/WebApplication1
but the Name: box is greyed out and I'm unable to start the new project.

I guess the answer is that I don't have IIS installed. How can I check this and how do I install it?

Also, looking to the future, does anyone know of anyone who does FREE ASP.NET web hosting??

Thanks

Nicola

for installing(or checking) IIS,go to Add or Remove Programs then select Add/Remove Windows Components then select Application server and find Internet Information Service(IIS)...make ready your windows CD...
for free ASP.NET web hosting try http://europe.webmatrixhosting.net/

Change WebApplication1 in the 'location' box and see what happens.

Thanks for the messages.

Have now installed IIS, but I now get a message that says the following:

Visual Studio .NET has detected that the specified Web server is not running ASP.NET version 1.1. You will be unable to run ASP.NET Web applications or services.

Obviously ASP.NET is installed (well, the .exe file is sitting their and smiling at me!), so what's up with it??

Thanks

Nicola

Nicola, did you try to search google for this? It's probably one of the most FAQ'ed things....

Despite it being answered ALL OVER the net- if you install IIS after .NET then IIS doesn't know how to talk to .NET. the .NET install tells IIS that. So you need to run a program called regiis.exe which you will find in the .NET framework directory. You need to use some command line switches- so I suggest you search google for them- I don't remember them off the top of my head.

 try this:

1) Open a command window. (Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.)
2) Navigate to the directory of the Aspnet_regiis.exe version you want to use. Remember that each version of the .NET Framework comes with its own version.

The file is usually located in the following directory:
for XP c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\<versionNumber>
for 2000 c:\winnt\microsoft.net\framework\<versionNumber>

Then type aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Cheers
