[ClickOnce] Using the ClickOnce Publish Wizard on Windows Vista

The ClickOnce publishing Wizard on Windows Vista generates the following error message:

"Failed to connect to 'http://localhost/WindowsApplication1/' with the following error: Unable to create the Web 'http://localhost/WindowsApplication1/'.  The Web server does not appear to have the FrontPage server extensions installed."

To solve this you need to do two basic things (thanks to my thinktecture colleague Dominick Baier):

  • Configure IIS to run in IIS6 Compatibility Mode.
  • Run Visual Studio as an Administrator.
