  • Hi All,

    I have deployed an ASP.NET web application in to SharePoint IIS. When I browse to that web application. I'm getting the below exception. 


        Exception type: ConfigurationErrorsException

        Exception message: An error occurred loading a configuration file: Failed to start monitoring changes to 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\xnet.com80' because access is denied. (C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\xnet.com80\web.config)

  • Hi Vidon,


    You can check if your application pool identity was set to network service in IIS. If it's so, please change the application pool identity to domain account and anonymous account to domain account.
