Runtime Error when publishing MVC3 ASP.Net application on Azure with TFS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to Azure, TFS.

    I created one simple MVC3ASP.Net application and tried to publish on Azure through TFS.

    It is giving me an error:

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Runtime Error

    Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. 

    Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".
    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->
            <customErrors mode="Off"/>

    Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.
    <!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->
            <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>

    I changed the web.config file with <customErrors mode="Off"/> then it throughed me out with an error


    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Configuration Error

    Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately. 

    Parser Error Message: Unrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive.

  • The TF Service was undergoing maintenance most of yesterday, which may have contributed to this issue. Are you still seeing the problem today?

  • This appears to be due to using .NET Framework 4.5, which is not supported in Windows Azure yet.  Please try again with .NET 4.0.
