VWD Express 2008 with IIS 7.0 and Vista: running an asp.net site RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-105344466 posted

    I have set up ASP.NET sites on the local host, IIS 7.0 on Vista. VWD 2008 express beta running as administrator but cannot browse the sites. I get an error page which includes:

    Config Error: This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false".

    Can anyone help please?

    How exactly did you set up the site? Is it under wwwroot or in My Documents?

    The error page usually shows you a file name and line number, so that you can narrow it down to a single section. 

    This error message alone usually indicates that a section that does not allow overriding has been overridden mistakenly. The solutions are,

    • Move it to a upper level with location tag.
    • Remove it if not in use.
