    Hi. Is there a way to make a call in ASP.NET that will effectively do exactly
    the same thing is when you "touch"/change the web.config file? In other
    words, I want to be able to programmatically cause the same kind of general
    resetting that happens when you touch the web.config file.

  2. Touching global.asax will do an application restart,
    and calling appdomain.unload will do it, too.

    iisreset resets the whole IIS server.

    You can also restart individual application pools.

  4. That's a great tip, Peter...

    For VB's the equivalent VB.NET code :

    Private Sub KillAspNetProcess()
    Dim processName As String = "aspnet_wp"
    Dim os As System.OperatingSystem = System.Environment.OSVersion
    'Longhorn and Windows Server 2003 use w3wp.exe
    If (((os.Version.Major = 5) AndAlso (os.Version.Minor > 1)) OrElse (os.Version.Major = 6)) Then
    processName = "w3wp"
    End If
    For Each process As Process In Process.GetProcessesByName(processName)
    Response.Write(("Killing ASP.NET worker process (Process ID:" + (process.Id + ")")))
    End Sub
