    Any help on this error much appreciated. Application works on dev but not on
    3d party host server (with useless support).

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Alex it seems you don't have access to the Web.Config file which is XML!
    Hope that helps

    Hi, Alex.

    You're trying to access a web.config on a shared network directory.

    The ASP.NET account you're using needs read permission
    to access the files on the shared network directory.

    well this is probably the way it is set up at host provider (brinkster) and
    what I found so far that it has nothing to do with the web.config itself.
    Thank you.
