IIS 403 error



I have a web app that works fine.

I am now trying to port it to another server. To test the install I am
attempting to run it on a virtual W2K3 server (under XP)

whenever I try and run the app I get a 403.1 Forbidden: execute access is
denied error
I have checked in IIS and execute access is on for all directories
Also in Web Service Extensions everything is set to 'allow'.

Any ideas?





even though you have an install package to install your web app onto another
server, make sure your web site is configured as an application.

IIS --> web sites --> default web site --> your web site name --> properties
on the directory tab look for application name, click the 'Add' button, then
Apply --> OK.
close everything out then try and run your web site and see what happens
