HEXAQ : A friendly question - answer site for IT professionals

The format of the specified network name is invalid


1

In Windows Server 2008, I have installed Visual Studio 2008.

Configured my project on IIS ( I use IIS 7.0).

At the time when I open browser (lets say IE 7) and opened my website, it gives an error message that reads

The format of the specified network name is invalid

The project compiles successfully and even runs perfect on auto assigned port numbers.

This happens on when I try to run the site using IIS.

Any help to resolve this? Thx

Check the IIS configuration. Your website should not be configured to run using IP address.

If any IP address is assigned you will get such error.

Make sure your WebClient service is started, if not please start it.
