    1. Maybe ur IIS is not switched on
    2. U might hv changed ur IP address which causes ur project to point at that IP

    You should not create duirectories starting with an "."inside your .NET web application

    Blame microsoft

    Re: Unable to retrieve folder information from the server...

    Thanks to the poster that suggested folders containing a "." can cause problems. I just thought I would add to the last comment about directories that contain a "." in them. We use SVN for source code control. We have to run a script to convert the "." to an "_" on the ".svn" directories. If you don't, then when you try to open the project in visual studio it pops up this message for each project that it tries to load containing a ".svn" subdirectory. When we're ready to update SVN we run another script to convert the "_svn" to ".svn" again. Cheers.
