Posted on 2010-11-26
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hi Guys

I have just finished writing my new .NET 4.0 c# web app in VS2010. The application runs great using the internal VS web server for testing but I have run into some issues while trying to get web pp running on IIS7.

I have 3 DLLs within my /Bin directory and I am not sure how to "register" (not sure if that is the correct word) them.

Could anyone offer any advice please?

Thanks Paul

You don't need to register them at all. What issue are you having getting the site to work?

Well as i said, all works well on local machine via VS2010 how ever when I try and run on IIS7 I get this error on login shown below in image.

The two file locations I have highlighted are paths to my classes on another DEV machine but why wud app be looking for them when these classes are now DLLs in the /Bin folder?

Thanks for any advice possible!

Is it a WebSite or Web Application project? How did you deploy it to your server?

OK. Instead of that Build the project, and then Publish it to a directory somewhere and copy the contents of that publish folder. It sounds like you may have just copied the contents of the development project instead, rather than the build output.

...and if I try and go by my external ip address i get error 401 (You do not have permission to view this directory or page because of the access control list (ACL) configuration or encryption settings for this resource on the Web server.)

Probably better to open that as another question, both in the IIS and Windows Server zones. Network configuration isn't really my area of expertise.
