Default Problem running web App

I receive the following error when trying to run my web app. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

Make sure that the folder "AutomatedProjectNumbers" inside of IIS manager is configured as an application. You can check this in the properties for that folder. Go to the "Directory" tab, then to the bottom where you'll find "Application Settings". There is a text box for "Application Name" followed by a button. If that button is labeled with "Create", then click it and ok everything else. If the button is labeled "Remove", then you can try clicking that then once more to re-create the application. If that doesn't work, post back, there could be other problems.

Work smarter, not harder.
