File System-based Web Project Support

You no longer need to develop your ASP.NET pages in a location defined by a separate Web server. Now you can develop your Web pages and ASP.NET applications in any file folder on your computer. Visual Studio 2005 includes a built-in ASP.NET Development Server so you can develop and run ASP.NET applications locally without IIS, SharePoint, or any other server installed. The directory-based model provides greater flexibility in organizing your projects and improves the security of your development machine. The built-in Web server can not be accessed remotely, does not interfere with other server’s activities, and shuts down when you close your Visual Studio 2005 development environment.

Just point to any folder and start building Web pages using Visual Studio 2005
