My understanding is that Front Page Extensions are not supported with IIS 7.5. Yet, when I try to open an existing web site in VS 2010, I get errors say that the site can't be opened due to lack of Front Page Extensions.
Given that FPE is not supported in my configuration, I'm guessing that there is some setting in VS 2010 that I have set incorrectly.
Can some kind person point me in the right direction?

It's a common (and confounding) complaint. You can use FTP or any file copy method. FPSE is only needed for HTTP/HTTPS deployments.

Thanks for your kind replies, but I think I was not clear with the issue.
I have an existing web site - it's never been opened in VS 2010. I don't want to deploy or FTP - all I want to do is open it (Right click the solution | Add | Existing Web Site -- pick my web site from the dialog and open it. I get that little wait dialog
and then I get the No FPE error.) I'm no where near wanting to publish - I can't open it to publish!
Thanks in advance for any insight. :-)

How did you develop the website in the first place?
Is it possible that you used some FPE feature on the website or the website was previously published to a hosting account with frontpage extension enabled.
Frontpage sites have some folders like _vti_cnf _vti_pvt

I created the site "manually" in IIS.
We have a legacy app written in ASP and I started with it and now we're adding aspx pages.
