Access to the path <pathname> is denied.

P: n/a
Everyone,

I'm lost as to why I'm getting the following Error message on my
..NET application.

Here's the error message I'm getting:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Access to the path <path> is denied.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of
the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more
information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the
path <path> is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider
granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request
identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically
{MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if
the application is not impersonating. If the application is
impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be
the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated
request user.

To grant ASP.NET write access to a file, right-click the file in
Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add"
to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account,
and check the boxes for the desired access.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We're running on a Windows2000/IIS5 machine. I've created a
virtual directory for the application and all the permissions seem to
be set correctly.

I have Everyone with full control set on the <path> and I've
compared my IIS settings with our production environment and
everything seems to be the same. Has anyone run across this before?
and found a solution.

Thank you in advance for any help/advice,
