My website is a subweb under the port 80 default web site.

So I put http://localhost/mysite/page.aspx and I get the issue above.

    I found a workaround. I have multiple sites defined in IIS using virtual hosting. I added a new port to my main site and ran the profiler with that port and it worked.

    That's exactly the advice we give when faced with this error, well done.

    Its a bug in ANTS- the web site is obviously not really "ambiguous" but it doesn't distinguish different web sites/same port.
