Security Exception on ASP.Net application on SharePoint

OK. I developed an ASP.Net application and deployed it on a SharePoint server by creating a Virtual Directory under the 80 hive of the SharePoint site. It is working fine on my dev box. When I deploy (pre-compiled app through Visual Studio 2008), I get the following error trying to access the aspx page
System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Diagnostics.EventLogPermission, System, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.

Just to make sure that the VirtualDirectory was setup correctly, I created an HTML file on the same location and it opens up fine. But ASPX pages throw the above exception.

Any clue?

Thanks

ASP.NET web sites run in a medium trust environment.  Why are you accessing the event log from the ASP.NET web site?  What does the development web site run as compared to the production web site (IIS5, IIS6, IIS7, Web Development Server...)?

My code is not trying to access the event log.

Both the sites are running IIS6.

I think this is doomed for failure.  Have you read any articles about mixing ASP.NET and Sharepoint applications?  There are very few ways to do it.  ASP.NET and Sharepoint use two different ISAPI DLL's to process page requests so they are in completely different application, thread pools and memory spaces.

You can deploy virtual directories on the web front-end servers that host ASP.NET applications but do not put the files in the 12 hive folder.

Can you give me more insite into what you are trying to achieve.  Maybe there is another way.

Thanks Tedbily for your comments.

I am not adding any files under 12 hive. I have a very simple ASP.Net application that is invoked through a simple window.open method from a button in a web part. I have the virtual directory under the 80 hive and somehow it is working without any problem on the development machine with SharePoint. Its the staging environment that is giving me trouble.

Alright, I solved the problem with the help of the following article

I had to change the SharePoint custom manifest and that solved the issue.
