Encrypting web.config

    I'm using the command line: aspnet_regiis.exe -pe "appSettings" -app
    "/passwordReset" to encrypt some sensitive values in the configuration
    section.

    I can always get the values encrypted, but it seems that sometimes when I
    encrypt it something goes wrong becuase it's not readable by the webapp.
    I'll copy in a new web.config file and run the command again and all will be
    fine. Anyone know what could be going wrong?
