Question Building .Net Web Projects on Windows 2003

I have a Visual Build project running on Windows 2000 that builds .Net web projects just fine. I am using the csproj files and not the solution, so I go into the app mappings in IIS and remove csproj. Everything works great. I applied these settings based on other posts I read.

I am now moving my build to run on Windows 2003. The same Visual Build project (working on Windows 2000) gets an error when I try to build my .Net web projects. I have applied the exact same settings as on Windows 2000. The error I am recieving is:

Step default property 'Filename' = 'http://localhost/introspect/searchui/searchui.csproj'
The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

If I try to build from the sln I get the same error:

Step default property 'Filename' = 'C:\Development\5.1 SP1\Source\Web Projects\SearchUI\SearchUI.sln'
Error loading info for project file 'http://localhost/introspect/SearchUI/SearchUI.csproj': The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.

If I specify the full path I get and invalid project error:

Step default property 'Filename' = 'C:\Development\5.1 SP1\Source\Web Projects\SearchUI\SearchUI.csproj'

Rebuilding configuration 'Release'...
Command: "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE\" "C:\Development\5.1 SP1\Source\Web Projects\SearchUI\SearchUI.csproj" /rebuild Release /project "C:\Development\5.1 SP1\Source\Web Projects\SearchUI\SearchUI.csproj"

Microsoft (R) Development Environment Version 7.10.3077.

Invalid project

I can get the project to compile using the following syntax from the cmd prompt: "C:\Development\5.1 SP1\Source\Web Projects\SearchUI\SearchUI.csproj" /build Release

Is there anything special I need to do on Windows 2003? Can you see where I am going wrong? Any reccomendations to resolve this would be great.
