Error - asp.net web project deployed in windows server 2008 r2 iis7

Last Modified: 2012-07-20
I have deployed the sample asp.net application with membership to the server detailed in the title of this question.

My application uses asp.net 4

When trying to register a new user, I get the following error

"Access denied creating App_Data subdirectory"

which means that the sample web application cannot be used...

Anyone know how to solve this? It should be a very common issue, however I do not find a clear explanation just by googling
