The process account used to run ASP.NET must have read access to the IIS metabase
Posted on 2007-10-21
I have copied a ASP.net program on my laptop, where visual .NET 2005 has been installed (together with ASP.NET Framework 2.0).
I have created a virtual directory for this applicaiton and set the ASP.NET tab under My testing website to 2.0.
When I access the site through the IE, it return with the error below :
"The process account used to run ASP.NET must have read access to the IIS metabase"
I go to the Local Users and Groups, but couldn't find a account named ASPNE. Only I could find related account is IUSR_.XXX and IWAM_XXXX. But refer to my material on hand, Window XP should use ASPNET. Is this related to my problem and how should I fix it ??
