error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.

I have an executable that works OK.  When I run the source code using the same web.config file, I'm getting an error message

It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.  This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.      It's pointing to line 53 in web.config.  Line 53 says:

<roleManager enabled="true"/>

The machine on which I have the source code does not have IIS, but the program has worked before.  A recent change was to enable anonymous authentication in addition to forms authentication.

Hi,

1. You have multiple web.config files in your application.
2. You have to Convert the folder to Application which has the web.config file other than ROOT folder.

I had accidentally copied my entire web app into one of its own sub-folders.
