How to solve "Your web server user needs write permission assigned to the folder where you're trying to save the file." from posted question http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/ASP/Q_20325587.html?

Thanks

Where server.MapPath("Simple.xml") shows, where your files do reside, you want to save..
For example > C:\Inetpub\wwwroot..

Then from security tab of folder properties set permission write to everybody..

also, be sure that in Server Settings, you have rights to execute scripts:

IIS --> Default Web Site --> Properties --> Home Directory --> Execute Permmissions: Scripts and Executables
