    Hello Chris,

    You are getting this error probably because your project is running under .NET 1.x version instead of .NET 2.x. You will need to change the ASP.NET version from the IIS manually from the properties of your project. This is needed due to the fact that the ASP.NET process does not have the rights to change the ASP.NET version of projects and thus you have to do it manually.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if there is another problem.

    Regards,
