They also seem to struggle with understanding where the code is running.

Trying to use Process.Start or Office Interop to open files on the client; trying to use MessageBox.Show to ask the user a question; trying to save files in a specific path on the client from server-side code; trying to read uploaded files directly from the path in the FileName property; etc.

Of course, I think a lot of these problems are caused, or at least exacerbated, by Visual Studio. When you run the project in VS, it's an interactive process on the same computer, so there's nothing to warn novice web devs that their assumptions are wrong. At the very least, it should be a non-interactive process, so that no UI can magically appear from the server-side code. If it could behave as if it has its own file system, completely separate from the developer's PC, that would cure even more misconceptions.
