Default IIS - Server Error in '/WroxUnited' Application

 Hi,

I have followed the instructions in Appendix B for installing the WroxUnited site in IIS under Windows XP Pro. On trying to access the site I get the following error:

Server Error in '/WroxUnited' Application.
Failed to access IIS metabase.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Web.Hosting.HostingEnvironmentException: Failed to access IIS metabase.

The process account used to run ASP.NET must have read access to the IIS metabase (e.g. IIS://servername/W3SVC). For information on modifying metabase permissions, please see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=267904.

Source Error:

An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.

Stack Trace:

[HostingEnvironmentException: Failed to access IIS metabase.]
   System.Web.Configuration.MetabaseServerConfig.MapP athCaching(String siteID, VirtualPath path) +3492170
   System.Web.Configuration.MetabaseServerConfig.Syst em.Web.Configuration.IConfigMapPath.MapPath(String siteID, VirtualPath vpath) +9

   System.Web.Configuration.RuntimeConfig.GetLKGRunti meConfig(VirtualPath path) +189

To get to this error, I had to enable virtual directory listing and click on default.aspx.

Can anyone suggest what needs to be configured to get this working? It seems to be a configuration/permissions issue.

many thanks,

lukemack.

I had the same problem. It was because I had installed IIS after .NET framework 2.0.

To solve this problem:

Start
Settings
Control Panel
Add/Remove Programs
Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0: Repair
