I have an application that I originally created targetting NET 3.5 framework.  This morning I changed the target to .NET 4 and also changed it within IIS.  I uploaded the new new web.config file, opened my browser and attempted to view my Default.aspx webpage, however I get a message of "The page cannot be found".   How can I fix this?

This problem is not related to moving from .Net 3.5 to 4.0.
Please check your virtual directory path and make sute it is pointing to correct physical directory.

You can verify by browsing the page in IIS.

Try one more time by following steps.

1. Make sure your application pointing to .Net 4.0
2. Rebuild the application.
3. Publish it.
4. Verify in IIS and select and browse the default.aspx (as shown in fig)
      - If its display the file in browser, check the URL for default.aspx.
5. If you find any error in URL, please correct it as correct one.
