This was a fresh install of XP Professional SP2 and only the Visual Web Developer 2005 Beta2 installed. There is a user called ASPNET because if I check the processes running on the machine, ASPNET user associated with the SQLExpress process. But browsing
the Security tab on the App_Data directory does not show this user.
When I use to install the ASP Web Matrix the ASPNET account was actually found under 'User Accounts' in the control panel but with the VWD 2005 install the ASPNET account can only be found through the Computer Managment console that lists Users and Groups
and is not listed in the User Accounts in the Control Panel. But since the ASPNET user is a member of the 'Users' group then theoretically it does have permission to the App_Data since the 'Users' group is listed under the Security tab of the App_Data directory.
The site of course works perfectly using the VWD server, it's getting the IIS to function correctly is the problem.
