I added my ASP.net website published folders to C:\inetpub\wwwroot.
I converted it to application(right click on the folder in IIS Manager).
I copied my first page in the website to C:\inetpub\wwwroot and made it default page from IIS.
Now when restart and browse it, my firstpage is looking for the master page and it throwing an error.
Server Error in '/' Application.

Parser Error 
Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately. 

Parser Error Message: The file '/Master.master' does not exist.

Open in new window

These exact same steps worked when I created a sample project with test.html page. I was able to access it.
What should I do to have the first page be able to find the master page.

Hi,

Here are a few things you could try.

1, change from codeBehind to CodeFile
2, if that doesn't work, try this link:

it might be a port conflict and this link shows how you can resolve it.

Does the Page declarative use a Masterfile?

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPages/Site.master" AutoEventWireup="true"    CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" Async="true" %>

Try removing the masterpagefile if it does and see if that works.

The other thing you could do is create a blank master page file (or copy from your website assuming you  had one?)

I would like to see your Default.aspx page and also Master.master file from your web application project.
