I have created two SubWebs and setup both as Web Apps (using the Web Application Tool). However when I try to deployany VS2005 project I get an "Execute accesss is denied" message when Itry to run any aspxpage. Even just a simple "hello world" program won't run. InPermission ManagerbothSubWeb directories have full read and write access. Any ideas?

VS.net & FrontPage extension sometimes switch off the execute permission your application when you perform Copy Project or Create New Project.
We have been working with Microsoft engineer on this matter for the past several months. They have confirmed this to be a bug with the Web Extension Client (WEC) that Visual Studio uses. MS has not come up with any patch yet.
To workaround the issue, follow the below steps to reinstall the application
- Logon to the control panel
- Navigate to Web Application Tool
- Select the directory / Application
- Click Uninstall Application
- Wait 5 seconds
- Click Install Application
