I do not have write permissions for this folder.

An error occurred when I tried to run a VS app that has been running for 3 years.

How can I save the machine.config file after I have edited it?

Thanks,

Check that the account which the application pool is running under has access to that file

This happened after I installed MySQL.  Default.aspx call to Machine.config causes error. Hosted app runs well.  I will uninstall MySQL.
