ASP.NET is not Authorized

am getting this message when i try to run EditItemTemplate on the server. Acces to MyCalendar.xml" is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider
To grant ASP.NET write access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET write access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access

My operating system is XP Professional.....and it does not have any security tab when I right click.

Please its very very urgent.

If  give ASPNET the right does not solve the problem, what I had to do is to create another account with a little more right then the aspnet

For security reasons, ASPNET "cannot" make changes to the windows system (What I figured)

Go to Control Panel -> IIS -> Right click on the application you want to change -> Properties

Go to Directory Security tab -> Anonymous access and authentication control -> Edit

The click for anonymous access box should be check, and the user name is the account you grant anonymous access.

FOR TESTING PURPOSE, you can use your logon info and see if it solve the problem, if it does. please create an account with the read/write right to the correct directory, and use that account for this folder only.

Hope that helps

To view Security Tab on your Windows XP Pro:

Open Windows Explorer, and choose Folder Options from the Tools menu.  On the View tab, scroll to the bottom of the Advanced Settings and clear (click) the check box next to "Use Simple File Sharing."  Click OK to apply the change, and you should now have a Security tab when viewing the properties of a file on an NTFS volume.

In the sedurity tab add write/modification access to ASPNET. I assume you have no impersonation.
