Creating virtual directory in IIS using C#

Hello netters,

I was trying to create a virtual directory in IIS using the following
code:
System.Enterpri seServices.Inte rnal.IISVirtual Root vr = new
System.Enterpri seServices.Inte rnal.IISVirtual Root();
string sError;
vr.Create("IIS://localhost/W3SVC/1/Root",@"C:\Prog ram
Files\Soft","We bServices",out sError);
Console.WriteLi ne(sError);
But I am getting following errors:
System.Runtime. InteropServices .COMException (0x80070003): The system
cannot find the path specified
at System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntry.Bind( Boolean throwIfFail)

at System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntry.Bind( )
at System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntry.get_I sContainer()
at System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntries.Che ckIsContainer()
at System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntries.Add (String name, String

schemaClassName )
at System.Enterpri seServices.Inte rnal.IISVirtual Root.Create(Str ing
RootWeb, String inPhysicalDirec tory, String VirtualDirector y,
String&.....
I even tried to create virtual directory using System.Director yEntry.
It gives me the same error.
Iam sure C:\Program Files\Soft exists . I am doubtful if Iam making
some mistake in passing first parameter.
Can Somebody please tell me what is going wrong?
Thanking you in advance,
Sudha

Sample working code I use:
using System;
using System.Director yServices;
namespace PAB.Utils
{
public class MkVdir
{
public MkVdir()
{
}
public static string CreateVDir(stri ng WebSite, string VDirName, string
Path, bool RootDir, bool chkRead,bool chkWrite, bool chkExecute, bool
chkScript, bool chkAuth,int webSiteNum, string serverName)
{
string sRet=String.Emp ty;
System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntry IISSchema;
System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntry IISAdmin;
System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntry VDir;
bool IISUnderNT;
IISSchema = new System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntry("IIS://"
+serverName +"/Schema/AppIsolated");
if (IISSchema.Prop erties["Syntax"].Value.ToString ().ToUpper() ==
"BOOLEAN")
IISUnderNT = true;
else
IISUnderNT = false;
IISAdmin = new
System.Director yServices.Direc toryEntry("IIS://localhost/W3SVC/" + webSiteNum
+ "/Root");
if (!RootDir)
{
foreach(System. DirectoryServic es.DirectoryEnt ry v in IISAdmin.Childr en)
{
if (v.Name == VDirName)
{
// Delete the specified virtual directory if it already exists
try
{
IISAdmin.Invoke ("Delete", new string [] { v.SchemaClassNa me, VDirName
});
IISAdmin.Commit Changes();
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
sRet+=ex.Messag e;
}
}
}
}

//
// Create the virtual directory
//
if (!RootDir)
{
VDir = IISAdmin.Childr en.Add(VDirName , "IIsWebVirtualD ir");
}
else
{
VDir = IISAdmin;
}

//
// Setup the VDir
//
VDir.Properties["AccessRead "][0] = chkRead;
VDir.Properties["AccessExec ute"][0] = chkExecute;
VDir.Properties["AccessWrit e"][0] = chkWrite;
VDir.Properties["AccessScri pt"][0] = chkScript;
VDir.Properties["AuthNTLM"][0] = chkAuth;
VDir.Properties["EnableDefaultD oc"][0] = true;
VDir.Properties["EnableDirBrows ing"][0] = false;
VDir.Properties["DefaultDoc "][0] = true;
VDir.Properties["Path"][0] = Path;
VDir.Properties["AppFriendlyNam e"][0]=VDirName;
//
// NT doesn't support this property
//
if (!IISUnderNT)
{
VDir.Properties["AspEnableParen tPaths"][0] = true;
}
VDir.CommitChan ges();
if (IISUnderNT)
{
VDir.Invoke("Ap pCreate", false);
}
else
{
VDir.Invoke("Ap pCreate", 1);
}
sRet+= "VRoot " +VDirName + " created!";
return sRet;
}
}
}

I was under the impression that creating the app_offline.htm file at the root of the webapp would cause all handles to be closed so that the app could be removed. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. One handle remains open. Debugging shows that it's actually the IIS cache and not ASP.NET that owns this handle. During IIS shutdown, the handle is closed with the following stack trace: ChildEBP RetAddr 0006fbe4 5a403e05...

Hi; My ASP.NET app (C# calling J# under .net 2.0) creates a png file in a subdirectory to display as part of the created page. However, the bitmap will not display due to a security violation. Everything is the default settings I believe. IIS is running under Local System. In IIS the DefaultAppPool is running under Network Service. Annonymous access uses the account IUSR_JASMINE (machine name is Jasmine).
