location of WebUIValidation.js

In .net, there is a script file - WebUIValidation.js - that is used for form validation at client side. The location of this file is specified in MACHINE.CONFIG. In my case, the value of the path is set to

 <webControls
            clientScriptsLocation="/aspnet_client/{0}/{1}/"

In my case, my web application is not residing in the default wwwroot folder. One solution I have tested is to copy the entire ASP_NET folder to my web folder, but this mean in the future I will have a lot of this ASP_NET folders for various web application in the server, which I DO NOT want.

Is there a way to specify a ABSOLUTE path rather than a relative path for this setting, so that I can keep just one copy of ASP_NET folder as specified in MACHINE.CONFIG.

Thank

You can always create a virtual directory in IIS. Open the IIS control panel, right click the web site you want to add the aspnet_client folder too, choose New, Virtual Directory..., for alias type aspnet_client, then browse to the location of the aspnet_client folder in your wwwroot foler. Now you'll only have one copy on your machine, but you'll be able to access the contents in any website where you setup the virtual directory.
