Hi there.ÃÂ I'm having a really hard time configuring my server so I can create ASP.NET apps on it using Visual Studio 2005.ÃÂ This is blocking an important project in my group.
Server is running Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition.ÃÂ We have a business need for this to be a 64-bit OS.
Server has IIS 6 and ASP.NET 2.0 installed.ÃÂ I can verify that ASP.NET 2.0 is working properly.
Development takes place on a separate computer running Vista x64 and Visual Studio 2005.
The problem occurs when I attempt to create a web project in VS05 against the server.ÃÂ I get the message "The server does not appear to have FrontPage Server Extensions installed."ÃÂ Okay, I download and install the FrontPage Server Extensions x64 from Microsoft's website, but I still get the same error message.ÃÂ I am also unable to configure the extensions on this server - I get internal server errors when I try to configure, or I get the message "Service Unavailable".
If I configure the server to run web apps in 32-bit mode, ASP.NET complains that it can't start due to the server configuration, and starting an ASP.NET project in VS returns the message "The server returned a message that FrontPage could not parse."ÃÂ (Trying to publish a precompiled website from my dev machine returns the message "Service unavailable".)
There does not appear to be a way to get ASP
