Make that "VaraibleEditor" as application type thru IIS Management Console. It will work.

Cheers!!

It was an application, and it used to work.  I had to use a backed up version to restore after a system crash and now I get that error.  I tried deleting the app in IIS, I tried recreating the application.  Still same error.  Man, this sucks.
