    Hi Gaurav,

    The Project Manager impersonates the ASPNET account as the currently logged user. Check in the top right corner of the Project Manager screen what account is being used. This user should be granted with full permissions to the WebSites folder.

    Check out our troubleshooting section Unable to create virtual directory
    This post might also help.
