    I've spent 8 hours trying to get my ASP.NET app to work but to no
    avail. I am running ASP.NET 2.0 on a Windows 2003 server. I am using
    IIS 6.0.

    When I run my application, I get the error message:

    Failed to start monitoring changes to 'xxx\web.config' because access
    is denied.

    (where xxx is the path to my application)

    I am trying to view the start page using a browser on the same machine
    and not over the Internet.
    I have tried just about everything:

    * Added virtually every possible user on the machine including
    "everyone" and granted everyone full permissions
    * Setup anonymous access in IIS to use various accounts including
    Local System
    * Modified the machine.config and web.config to use accounts that have
    full permissions
    * Modified application pooling to use various accounts with full
    permissions.

    What am I missing??

    Your help is much appreciated.

    the "method 3" can fix the problem)
