Web Client Software Factory error "Failed to map the path /" in Vista


There is a problem when developer trying to debug a WCSF project in Vista. The page will show something similiar above. "Server Error in '/DevelopmentWebsite' Application" and "Failed to map the path '/'"
But not too worry, to solve the problem, you have to quit the Visual Studio program and restart the Visual Studio program (either 2005 or 2008) by right clicking the exe and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.
Then it should work fine.
