Cause 1: Your web application doesn't have an Application name. Please
check the properties of the web project using the IIS MMC to ensure that
your web project has an application name

Cause 2: If you are using the NTFS file format, please make sure that
"aspnet" has proper privilege on "wwwroot" or your folder for virtual
directory to access and write on the folders.
