VS.NET ASP.NET Web Project Directory

It seems by default VS.NET creates a web project as a subdirectory under the IIS wwwroot folder... and is also accessed as such:

i.e., http://myserver/myproject/default.aspx

I know I've read, however cannot find now, articles about changing the configuration so the project resides within the root, not 1 level down.

Any tips? pointers? solutions? Thanks!

I haven't seen any articles about it, but there's a 3 minute MSDNTV episode about how to do it.

(also a related episode at )

I did this recently. When VS asks for the project location when you first create it, just enter http://localhost/ . It will automatically add the project's name to the location you entered, but you can delete that part and be on your way.

Good luck,

Staffan, You were right on the money! Thanks...
