    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    It seems this issue is about the ASP.NET development and our forum is to discuss the VS IDE, please redirect to this appropriate forum to seek for a more professional support, thank you for your understanding.

    As far as I know, this error 500.19 in IIS often means there have a problem in the associated Web.config file, please check the 'connectionStrings' section have the right definition and under the right element.
