I am continually getting a 404 error on PSSK. I am using Windows Server 2003, and I even installed the Visual Web Developer and created the site on the server. I have no problems running it with ctrl-F5 or even using F5, it's when we try to access it from
IE on a different computer. I get a 404 error every time. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
The URL for the site I'm trying to publish is
Also of note: the Welcome.html page can be viewed, but no .aspx pages.

Thank you for your reply Rafa. I just tried that and it installed successfully. I still get a 404 error each time. Any other suggestions?

Hmmm... If you right click on your web site in Internet Information Services and choose properties what does the ASP.NET version say under the ASP.NET tab

Actually I can't even ping the host. Are you sure the ip is mapped correctly or that there isn't any firewall configured to block port 80

No, you can have as many Virtual Directories using PWS as you want. It sounds like this was maybe moved to 2003 server from XP which would lock the database because the permissions are wrong. Is this the case? This shouldn't give this exact error, but also
check that Windows Authentication is chosen in IIS

Copying from XP to Server 2003 was originally the case, so I just installed VWD on the server, deleted the original PWSSK, then created the new one and get the DATABASE IS READ ONLY error. I also checked in Security settings in IIS, Windows Authentication
is chosen. Also, in the file structure, the .mdf files in the APP_DATA folder have 'WRITE' and 'SPECIAL PERMISSIONS' checked for the internet guest account.
Any other suggestions?

in windows 2003 sql needs the "network service" account, in windows xp I believe it uses the "aspnet" account. The thing is though, is that once sql 2005 gets these permissions it becomes a pain to get them back... I found the best way is to create the app_data
folder before copying to 2003 and setting the permissions beforehand so it inherits them correctly

I removed the PWSSK that I created in XP and created a new one (in the same folder) with Visual Web Dev on the server itself. Would that still cause the problems in SQL Express?
