Hello everyone,

I just downloaded this Isapi Filter, and I think it is just what I need. Unfortunately, I am having some issues getting it to work. I have Windows XP Professional with IIS 5.1, and I am using Visual Studio 2003 and ASP.NET 1.1. All my websites work fine currently, but when I follow the installation instructions, and add the Isapi Rewriter Filter to the "Websites" node, I get the following error message when loading an existing project in Visual Studio 2003: "Visual Studio .NET has detected that the specified Web server is not running ASP.NET 1.1. You will be unable to run ASP.NET Web applications or services." As soon as I remove the filter, everything goes back to normal. I have spent several hours researching this error message, but none of the solutions (e.g re-installing IIS etc) seem to work. Has anyone else encountered this problem before? If so, how did you resolve it?

Thanks In Advance,

You are adding the filter to the "Default websites" node, yes?
