Unable to create Web project, server denies access to URL path

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The UNC share does not exist or you do not have access. You may need to modify the NTFS file-system permissions, or you may need to share the wwwroot folder on the server.

If the error message is the result of inaccurate NTFS file-system permissions on the directories containing your Web files, then you must set administrator and system permissions on the target directories. For more information about permission settings used for Internet Information Services (IIS), consult the IIS documentation.

If the error message is the result of an unshared wwwroot folder, then you will need to share the folder. Consult your Windows documentation for instructions on sharing the folder.
