I am trying to set up a Windows 7/ Sharepoint 2007 (WSS) / Visual Studio 2008 box. Sharepoint is installed and running fine. I open VS2008 and create a Sharepoint Blank Site. I then try to deploy however i keep getting an error

"The remote server returned an unexpected response (405) Method not allowed"

I am more used to developing under SP2010/VS2010 so i'm a bit lost. Any help/how to's/book recommendations using VS2008/2007 greatly appreciated

To go in a different direction: Create a Virtual PC instance of Windows Server 2003 on your Windows 7 box. Install Visual Studio 2008 and WSS on your Virtual PC instance and run it from in there.

Also, if you ARE using VSeWSS, download WSPBuilder instead from http://wspbuilder.codeplex.com/. It is an add-in for Visual Studio and work MUCH better than VseWSS.
