Okay i have what may seem a really easy to solve problem but i've been trying to solve it for days.

I'm trying to deploy a asp.net MVC2 application to a IIS 5.1 server running Windows XP Pro. (it's actually the default MVC2 app) However when i deploy, the only thing i'm able to see is a Directory listing. I tried a lot of stuff but can't get it to display anything other than the directory listing.

hopefully i'm just a noob who forgot to add something, thanks for your answer :)

Verify that:

  • The appropriate .NET Framework has been installed on the workstation.
  • ASP.NET has been installed (if the .NET Framework was installed prior to IIS being installed, it won't be): aspnet_regiis -i
