HttpException (0x80070005): Access denied to 'c:\inetpub'

P: n/a
I just installed my ASP.NET app on a Win 2k server. I installed the files in
a folder on D: and setup a virtual directory in IIS Default web.

We had to install the Framework 1.1 and SP on this computer.When I attempt
to run this app I get the error mentioned above. I granted ASPNET access to
the folder on D: with Read & Execute, List Folder Contents and Read
permissions. The Direcory Security for this app is set as Anonymous access,
User name: ASPNET, Allow IIS to control password and Integrated Windows
authentication. The app itself uses Forms authenification.

This app runs fine on a Win 2003 server.

Here is the full error received when attempting to run from localhost on the
Win 2k box:

Access denied to 'c:\inetpub'. Failed to start monitoring file changes.
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.Web.HttpException: Access denied to 'c:\inetpub'.

Dave:

A couple observations. You set the permissions on the folder on D: but the
error message refers to c:\inetpub.

The following is a KB article referencing the same error number. There are
related links at the bottom of this article.
