I came across an issue today which I've never had before and was wondering if anyone else has seen similar. I was wrinting a blog post about and appcmd script and wanted to copy and paste the resultant section from applicationhost.config. Then I hit
the problem, I ran VS2008 elevated but when I browsed to c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\config not files are listed and I can't open applicationhost.config, however I can find and open the file using an elevated instance of trusty Notepad :o. I've tried system
restarts etc and still can't get passed this. I'm running Vista Ultimate 64 SP1, can't remember ever having this problem on Vista Business 32bit SP1, just trying to work out if it's a 64 bit issue or VS2008 issue.
Anyone any ideas?

This happens because VS2008 is a 32-bit binary and so when you try to open %windir%\system32\inetsrv with VS2008, the file-system redirection for 32-bit binaries on x64 OS kicks in and you actually end up opening %windir%\syswow64\inetsrv and there is no
config directory or applicationhost.config file in there.

Map a network drive to your C drive. You can then open the file on the mapped drive with VS2008.
