upgrade web app from windows server2003 to server2008 RRS feed

    I am manage a .net C# web application that is quite complicate at least to my level.  It uses Ajax and bunch of custom libraries. It is currently resides in windows server 2003.

    We are upgrading to windows server 2008. I copied all the web files and folders structure onto the new server the same way in windows server 2003. 

    I got the following errors:

    (Access to the path 'c:\temp.log' is denied.   Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

     Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'c:\temp.log' is denied.

    ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

    To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.)


    I tried to fix the errors by following the instruction on the error page given above, but did not work. Seems like I need to add ASP.NET user account to site? Please help. Thanks
