It's time to work on the hands on labs for ESC West (now called Electronica) - one of the labs we're building for this year is the .NET Compact Framework lab - I plan to include XML Web Services in the lab, so decided to create an XML Web Service on my laptop which will be the starting point for the lab content - unfortunately, when trying to create an ASP.NET XML Web Service project in Visual Studio .NET 2003 I got an error telling me that ASP .NET 1.1 was not installed - after checking Add/Remove programs the .NET Framework 1.1 was installed correctly (and all the .NET applications on my laptop were running as expected) - it would appear that I installed the IIS components on my laptop AFTER installing Visual Studio .NET 2003 - so I needed some way of re-installing the ASP.NET bits - a quick search of SUPPORT.MICROSOFT.COM came (via google) came up with the following article - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;306005 - this shows how, from a command  prompt to install and configure ASP.NET 1.1 - everything is now working - time to crack on with the code...
