Scenario Summary:
Attempting to run an ASP.NET Web Application on localhost under Vista x64, the page fails to load and returns Debugging Error: BC2000: Compiler initialization failed unexpectedly: Access is denied.
Scenario Details:

The above error occurred after a clean install of Windows, Visual Studio, etc.  While I was able to load the Web application(s) via Visual Studio 2008's debugging process (using it's "temporary server"), I could not access the application directly (through the default port)  outside of VS.  In other words http://localhost/AppName/default.aspx failed to load, and instead I received the above error.
