Custom Error Mode asp.net

Hello:

My application runs great on my laptop but when moving to the development server; I get the following message:

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

I've found other posts on EE related to this but nothing that would help me specifically.
Here is a snapshot from my web config file where I've attempted to turn off custom errors.
At this point; I just need to see the error so I figure out what to do next.   I did change my sql server db connections so they don't use windows authentication thinking that might be the issue.

Other developers use this server so I would be surprised if it was set this way at the server level.

Thanks for any help


            <authentication mode="Windows"/>
    <customErrors mode="Off" >
   
            </customErrors>
          </system.web>
</configuration>

HI

You config file setting is right, the only reason that I can guess why it is not working is that you have a config file with the old settings. to check that see the content of the config file on your web project bin/debug after compilation and compare it with the one you have changed. If it is not identical, remove the web.config in bin/debug and recompile.
