Visual InterDev & IIS

By agibbs ·
I'm trying to create a project in InterDev fron the <root> aplication on my IIS 5.0 (Win2K) server. My problem is I have several sub-webs and InterDev won't let me open the files in my sub-webs. I can open up files in the <root> directory just fine but as soon as I try to open something in the /customers subweb I get a message:

"Unable to get the file 'blablabla.asp' Server error: 'blablabla.asp' does not refer to a page or folder in this web. It may be a page or folder in a subweb, or it could be a badly formed URL."

What gives? Can I include a sub-web as part of a project? Do I have to create another project for this sub-web? The only reason I created the sub-web was to use different Shared Borders for that section of the website in FrontPage -- I didn't create a new application.

See MS KB Article I Q240310 (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q240/3/10.ASP)entitled "Visual InterDev 6.0 Does Not Support Nested Subwebs". " ... it may be a page or folder in a subweb ..." in the error message is just what it is: VI 6.0 does not support creating or opening nested subwebs. So this is the problem. There may be different ways to deal with it. One way is to use different projects, but combine them under one solution in VI (the highest level in VI's Project Explorer). If you open a VI solution then, you do not need to open individual projects separately. Hope this will work for you. You might also want to use VI's own themes and layouts (you can use different layouts for different parts of the project, if necessary) instead of Shared Borders, but this is a different story.
