I am trying to create an ASP web app in VS .net. I have IIS installed and I can open an asp page without any problems(i.e. http://localhost/app1/page1.asp) Whenever I try to create a a new ASP web app in VS, I get an internal server error. Using even viewer, I get these two errors. aspnet_wp.exe could not be started. The error code for the failure is 80004005. This error can be caused when the worker process account has insufficient rights to read the .NET Framework files. Please ensure that the .NET Framework is correctly installed and that the ACLs on the installation directory allow access to the configured account. aspnet_wp.exe could not be launched because the username and/or password supplied in the processModel section of the config file are invalid. Obviously it is a permissions/ID problem. But where can I change these? I'm not even getting prompted for anything when I create a new app, so how can I be using an invalid ID?
