I've noticed (Through Fiddler2), that when I build my solution, Visual Studio makes a request to the webserver for "/_vti_inf.html", apparently looking for FrontPage Server Extensions installed on my server. I don't use FrontPage, have never installed anything
related to FrontPage, and don't want my copy of visual studio making requests like this.
Does anyone know how I might turn it off? This is causing some minor headaches for me, namely the domain I run locally from isn't always working (I turn on/off through the host file). When it's off, visual studio pops up a "Connecting" dialog, and I have
to cancel out of it. Also, when I'm working on webproject1, I see this window popup for a webproject I'm not even currently working on, so it just seems like it needs to go!

Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 RTM, and Windows Server 2008 R2 do not provide built-in options to install the FrontPage Server Extensions, and Microsoft releases versions of the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions (FPSE 2002) for IIS 7 and above.
When it's off, visual studio pops up a "Connecting" dialog, and I have to cancel out of it.
I don’t have available method of disabling the request to the FrontPage Server Extension, perhaps the request needs to go, I think you need install the FrontPage Server Extension on your IIS.
If I misunderstand you or anything wrong, please let me know.
hope it helps you,

For anyone that cares, I found a workaround, without installing frontpage. Instead of configuring my web project in visual studio to "Use Local IIS Web server", I simply checked "Use Custom Web Server", and used the same url. I haven't noticed a difference.
