When using RDP or the console I can act on this IIS7 file (applications.config) I can view, edit , copy, etc. I do see a "lock" on the icon for the file in I.E.
However when I run a script that tries to open and read this file, nothing happens. The script is executed by either System or Administrator and it liek the file does not exist. In fact all files in theis folder appera to be invisible.
