none
the filename directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed SP1 for Visual Studio 2010 Professional. I also installed IIS Express 7.5 with the MS Web Platform INstaller. When I try to create a new web site using the HTTP instead of file system in either IIS or IIS express (even if I start Visual Studio as an administrator), I get the following error:

    Cannot create folder account. the filename directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect.

    I have searched for the '&' figure but none exist in the file or folder or Windows 7 user account or logon's.

    Does anyone know what is causing this and how to correct it. I can create the project in the file system and publish it to Windows IIS and it works fine.

    Thanks,
