"A connection to the server could not be established" - Trying to open existing project


K

Kevin Buchan

I came in today and tried to edit a project that I was working with,
locally, at the tail end of last week. This web project was created,
hosted, and only edited locally.

I truly cannot remember anything that I installed/changed on my
workstation that could have goofed up my IIS, but I simply cannot get
VS 2003 to be able to open an exiting or create a new web project.

I have tried the following:
* Uninstall and Reinstall IIS (making sure that FrontPage extensions
are installed)
* Put all but obvious '.Net Guest' accounts into both the
'Administrators' and 'Debugger Users' Groups.
* Reapplied WindowsXP Sp1 since I found an MSDN KB article about WinXP
reporting this problem after installing IPv6 (which I have not done.)
* Deleted all projects from my local machine, got latest version from
Source Safe, set the project folders as 'Web Applications' and tried
to open them.

I have searched everywhere I know to look, including this news group.
My next step (after I wait a few hours to see if there are any
suggestions) is to uninstall VS.Net 2003, cross my fingers, and
reinstall. Obviously, this is killing my productivity during a time
that I just don't have much free time. (Do any of us have free time?)

Thanks for any suggestions, including "Uninstall/Reinstall VS.Net
2003".

I had tried the first entry in the KB article you refenced, but had
not tried the second part.

<time passes>

I have now tried both, including trying the first again after ensuring
that the DLL is registered and I still get the same error either when
pulling up an existing project or trying to create a new Web Project.

Thanks for the suggestion!

No other suggestions? OK, I'm going to reinstall VS.Net and report my
results, in case anyone else runs across this problem.

OK, uninstalling IIS and VS.Net then reinstalling IIS and VS.Net has
not worked either.... still researching a solution while my
development is halted.
