Hi Experts,

i got this error

It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

How do I go about resolving this
"This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS."

thanks

Hi SirReadAlot,
you can resolve it by going to run start menu->run->type inetmgr->opening internet information services (IIS).
now expand all nodes and go to "default web site" on right side of window. search for your application directory in tree.
right click on your directory and go to properties menu option.
on side of application name textbox press create button.
and its all done.


Regards,
