I have set up ASP.NET sites on the local host, IIS 7.0 on Vista. VWD 2008 express beta running as administrator but cannot browse the sites. I get an error page which includes:
Config Error: This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location
