I get the following msg in VS2003 when I try to open the project. The vbproj & webinfo files are fine. I’m not sure where it’s getting the “:/” at the end of localhost.
Unable to open Web project ‘Aspose.Word.Demos.VB.WebForms’. The file path ‘C:\Program Files\Aspose\Aspose.Word\Demos\Aspose.Word.Demos.VB.WebForms’ does not correspond to the URL ‘http://Localhost:/Aspose.Word.Demos.VB.WebForms’. The two need to map to the same server location. HTTP Error 404: Object Not Found
I agree that “:/” looks suspicious. Several things you could try:
1. Double check that you created virtual directory correctly. It must be called Aspose.Word.Demos.VB.WebForms and must point to that C:\Program Files location that you mention above.
2. The demo project is very simple. You can create your own new project in VS2003 in a new folder and simple add all files from the demo. In this way you will get a fresh project properly made in VS2003.
Let me know if you need further help.
