Permissions issue when deploying a VB.NET application RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have developed an app in VS 2010 and deployed it on a Windows 2003 server.  Now I'm attempting to deploy it on a Win 2008 R2 server. 

    I am getting the following error message:


    	Below is a summary of the errors, details of these errors are listed later in the log.
    	* Activation of \\Asiapp1\applications\OnlineClaimsImageProcessing\OnlineClaimsImageProcessing.application resulted in exception. Following failure messages were detected:
    		+ Configuration system failed to initialize
    		+ An error occurred loading a configuration file: Access to the path 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Config\machine.config' is denied. (C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Config\machine.config)
    		+ Access to the path 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Config\machine.config' is denied.


    This is a VB.Net Console app, NOT an ASP.Net web app. 

    What account(s) must have what permissions on the above-referenced machine.config file for this to work?

  • Turns out it was fine.  We had changed passwords and it took longer for the new passwords to propagate than I had expected.
