I've been at this all day, trying to get Web Deployment setup on my server. First off, I'm running IIS7 under Windows Server 2008 Data Center 64bit (on a VPS). At first I thought I had it working, but it seems I was using the old (Windows Administrator login only) IIS6 stuff that comes alongside IIS7.
I've followed this guide perfectly, and I'm still getting errors: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/516/configure-the-web-deployment-handler/.
This is the error I receive (as per the directions at the end of the article):
Any help is appreciated. I've tried everything (I've verified all the basic things like LOCAL SERVICE folder access, IIS Manager permissions, the service is active, etc).
