Just installed Visual Studio and My Web Page Starter Kit on my new vista based computer and received the following error during compilation. Has anyone experienced the same problem and if so do you have a solution?

Error 1 It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

Hello, create a virtual directory in the IIS program (via Administration Tools in the Configuration window) and point to the MyWebPagesStarterKit_1.1.3 directory on your harddrive. Select 'Properties' via right-click of this directory and push the button 'Create' on the 1st tabpage. Now you created a virtual directory/application as what the error message asks for.

Ps. there is just a new version 1.1.4.

Good luck.
