Hello Experts,

on my dev machine, which I just re-formatted, I'm trying to re-setup my websites and I am having trouble with my virtual directories.

When I setup my virtual directory, and test its connection, I get the error message below. The physical path of the virtual directory is in another website under the same environment, and when I access it from that site as a physical directory it works, but when I access it virtually it says path not found.

This did work before I reformatted, and still works on my live machine, so my code should be fine.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The error I get is:
Test Connection

Hi,

As per the error, the physical path of the virtual directory is missing the domainname\servername$ permission. Try to add it and see it connects fine?. Also, have a look at this thread http://forums.iis.net/t/1148262.aspx?Cannot+verfy+access+to+path 

I hope this helps

How do I add the "domainname\servername$ permission"?

FYI I am not on an Active Directory environment.

As well, my IIS is on the same PC as where I am trying to browse. In other words, there is no multiple PCs as per your link.

Hi,

Locate the physical path (I.e - C:\inetpub\wwwroot)>>Right click and properties>>Security>>Edit>>Add>>Click on "Object type">>Tick "Computers" and OK>>Add the DomainName\servername$ and click check names. Select the appropriate permissions and click ok.

Click "Add" you'll get the Object type button. Since you don't have a domain environment, just type servername$. Perform IISRESET and check the issue.
