Here's what finally worked...
1. Created a new directory in my working space called
2. Set it to be shared using the Share This Folder option in Web Sharing
3. Opened up my current solution in VS.NET 2003. This solution already
contains a windows app exe and library class. I then used Add New to
add a C# ASP.NET Web Service and set the URL to
4. I tested this first in my browser and it worked!
5. I added my tried and true .asmx file from it's old location on
wwwroot and it tested fine too.
I didn't have to change any .csproj files of the path in IIS since I'm
just adding a single .asmx file.
I don't know what it was exactly but something very slight was different
between this approach (which I've never tried before) and what I was
doing all darn day today. I was creating my virtual directories in IIS.
However, I didn't notice any outright differences between the properties
in IIS for what I've done today and I what I just did. Go figure.
The bottom line is now my web service project is inline with my other
projects for this solution and can now be added to Subversion. I can't
believe I killed the whole day on this one problem.
Tom, thank you thank you thank you. It may not seem likely but if you
ever need someone to try some code out as you've done for me, let me
know. I'll drop whatever I'm doing to help you out. It was a pleasure
working with you.
Kevin, thanks for the intended help. If Tom's approach didn't work I
was going to try yours.
