I've a Handler for my web application and try to write to a file:

The response is ever, that I've no rights to write there - UnauthorizedAccessException ...
The path is right in the error message: "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\webapp\test.xml"

How can I solve this problem?

This is because the ASPNET account and the NETWORK SERVICE account do not have the correct permissions..

Right click the folder webapp and select properties. Then add all rights to ASPNET and NETWORK SERVICE users
