That's a big topic choco, but without knowing a lot about your internal configuration and security settings I'm not sure we can help you much here. The problem is not TicketDesk specific, so troubleshoot it like it were any virtual directory and/or security problem.

Make sure you check your windows event logs to see if it is catching any additional info about the problem.

The easiest way to troubleshoot this kind of issue is just to go step-by-step testing as you go.

First make a virtual directory under wwwroot without changing anything at all. The default setup and security in IIS and the windows file system should already be sufficient for TicketDesk's needs. Create a static default.htm file in the root of this folder. Browse to it and make sure it loads in the browser. Then you can test asp.net by dropping in a simple default.aspx file with nothing but some static HTML content in it. See if that works. If so, then move on to copying in TicketDesk to this location.
