Every time I’ve tried to install VS.net 2003 I’ve had to deal with this error, the solution is out there on many other sites but thought I’d put it here for my own reference.

Often when trying to create a web project in VS.net you’ll get the error:

“Visual Studio .NET has detected that the specified Web Server is not running ASP.NET version 1.1. You will be unable to run ASP.NET Web applications or services.”

To resolve this all you need to do is open a command prompt (Start, Run, Type “cmd” enter) and enter the following:

%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

That should do it!
