Publishing to a subfolder - Attribute 'processPath' is required. RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-29703693 posted

    My asp.net core app loads fine when I publish to the website's root directory.  However, I would like to publish it to a "sandbox" subfolder.  When I try that, I get the error:

    Could not load configuration. Exception message: Attribute 'processPath' is required.

    Source: IIS AspNetCore Module V2

    My web.config file is: 

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <location path="." inheritInChildApplications="false">
            <add name="aspNetCore" path="*" verb="*" modules="AspNetCoreModuleV2" resourceType="Unspecified" />
          <aspNetCore processPath="dotnet" arguments=".\CTM.dll" stdoutLogEnabled="false" stdoutLogFile=".\logs\stdout" hostingModel="inprocess" />

    Any idea how I can resolve this?  Thanks in advance.

    I was able to figure it out by adding
