Error while trying to run project: unable to start debugging on the Web server

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The Web server you are attempting to debug on does not have the Visual Studio .NET server components installed on it, or your server is running Windows NT 4.0. Visual Studio .NET does not support debugging Web applications on a Windows NT 4.0 server. Ensure that your server is running Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

If you are running Windows 2000 or Windows XP, you can correct the problem by running setup on your Web server and installing the Visual Studio .NET server components. For more information, see Installation and Setup.
