This is driving me crazy. I am sure you have all heard this error before. I tried regiis -i and -r and iis is running the thing I dont understand is that everything was working. Then it just stopped. I get the error when I open up a web project, but I can still edit it and run it. If I browse to a page on localhost it works fine. But I cannot create a new web project because of this error, what is up with that? I have vs.net 2003 with asp 1.1.4322 running windows xp.
