Getting Started with .NET

I have a .NET script running in a folder - businesses.  Right now the DB is in db/data.mdb - I am only testing this right now but when I navigate to the URL, I receive an error:
<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

I know I am supposed to have a web.config and I found one but I am not sure what needs to be changed.  

Thank you!

This can be linked to several main causes

1) Make sure the website is set as an application
2) Make sure the XML of the web.config is valid
3) Make sure the website is set to the proper .Net framework.
