    I just installed Visual Studio 2003 and tried to create a
    Web Service project. I received HTTP/1.0 500 Internal
    Server Error. I confirmed that IIS is running. I get the
    same error when I tried to go to http://localhost.

    Do I need to reinstall IIS or VS 2003?

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

  2. Paul,

    In order to understand what is actually going on you'll need to enable
    "meaningful" errors. I assume you use IE to access you IIS server. Go to
    menu Tools/Internet Options. Click on the Advanced tab, *uncheck* "Show
    friendly HTTP error messages" option and click Ok. Try accessing your web
    page again. At that moment you should see much more meaningful error message
    which will help you to troubleshoot the problem.
