Trouble with ASP.NET on Vista IIS.

visual , asp iis microsoft , Bucharest, Romania
  • 11 years ago

    I have installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 , trial version and I am running it on VISTA SP1. The IIS server is up and running: I am able to run .php files and .asp files.

    In the C# tab , I am choosing File->New -> Project -> .NET Web Application.

    As I run a standard empty project, the result should be a blank page , but I receive in my browser the following error: Connection Timeout, Firefox cannot establish a connection with the server localhost:port. It appears that Microsoft Visual Studio cannot find the page, named default.aspx.

    I tried manualy writing default.aspx in the browser address tab , but it gives me the same error.

    I have checked in Programs and Features and the .NET Framework is installed.

    What can I do to make the website work through .NET? I will check any comments from you and give you the insight about any details concerning my system.

    I am in college and I just started a course on programming in ASP.NET so I urgently need yo make it running. Thank you in advance!
