    I've installed Visual Studio 2005 Beta from the MSDN cd dated Aug 2004, which
    installs the 2.0 framework and ASP.NET 2.0. I write a simple aspx page
    containing <HTML><BODY>Hello world</BODY></HTML> and place it in
    inetpub\wwwroot. I run the page http://localhost/test.aspx and it fails with
    "Server Error in '/' Application." "Failed to map the path '/test.aspx'. " I
    can successfully run asp and htm pages from that same location, however.

    Help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your reply, Steve. I gave ASPNET_REGIIS.EXE -i a try, as you
    suggested, but it did not change the outcome.

    Hello randy,

    I think this is because wwwroot is not a vroot. ASP.NET apps need to have
    a vroot.

    Thanks for your reply, Matt, however, I get this same error regardless of
    whether I put the aspx page in a virtual directory or in the root of the
    website. I can access asp pages from either of these. I reinstalled visual
    studio 2005 a second time and reran the registration, too, to no
