QUESTION: How many APPLICATIONHOST.CONFIG files should you have in an IIS 7.0/.NET 4.0 installation ???
Wednesday, August 01, 2012 4:08 AM
Sorry, I am truly a newbie...
I've looked pretty thoroughly for this time of the night for an answer, but haven't found one, so I thought I'd ask here.
I've got one in C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Config\applicationhost.config;
I've got another in C:\windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationhost.config.
I suspect that the one in the .NET FRAMEWORK path is a duplicate and shouldn't be there, but I'm not sure, so I'd thought I'd ask.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

As your question is related to both .NET Framework and IIS, you might also ask in the IIS forums, here:

I've done a research on this issue on my lab.
I tested four computers but all of them tells me "applicationhost.config" cab only be found under
1. .NET 4 installed
2. Visual Studio installed
3. Haven't do any other action to IIS
Then I found this page http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/124/introduction-to-applicationhostconfig/
It seems this issue is more related to IIS.
For more details, please refer to IIS forum pvdg42 mentioned.
