ASP.NET 2.0 and IIS as non-admin

I have been using the file server method with ASP.NET 2.0 since the beginning. I thought it was time to run in IIS. Note that all of my .NET 1.0 and 1.1 development has been against a remote server. I have never had to use ASP.NET 1.x on a machine iwth a local IIS, so there are some bad lessons I never had to learn. Though I have always heard the remote web server development process was supposedly much more difficult.

So, now I ask, should I be embarrassed that I have spent the past 3+ hours trying to get 2.0 and IIS on a Windows XP box running as non-admin? Should I give up and get on with my life? I have seen many references to it being really easy with.NET 2.0. Hmmmm…

Sadly, I can’t really give up. Not when I’ve seen referenes to the fact that ASP.NET 2.0 was supposed to make this easy to do. Or perhaps those references are related to the file server approach.
