question about setting aspnet user rights

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Sheryl Landon, Aug 14, 2004.

  1. Hi - when I try to run my app, I'm geting this error immediately:
    "The directory does not exist or is not accessible because of security
    settings"

    The app was running previously, but my machine crashed and I had to
    reinstall XP, VS.NET, etc. Now it won't work.

    I see that maybe I need to give the aspnet user access to the directory, and
    the instructions say to go to Explorer, then the the properties dialog for
    the directory and go to the "Security" tab, but that tab doesn't appear in
    my properties dialog. I do have the directory set for web sharing, and a
    virtual directory is set up in IIS. How can I check the rights for the
    aspnet user?

    Or, any other ideas why I would get this error? I have XP sp1 (before the
    crash I did not have sp1), vs.net 2003, 1.1 framework...

    Thanks, Sheryl

  2. Never mind everyone... I found out how to disable "simple sharing" so that I
    could customize the settings...
