Creating A Virtual Directory Using A Script?
I am looking forward to configure my project as a virtual directory using some sort of script i.e. programmatically ... after a bit of search i came to know about these vb script files that we have in windows named as Iisvdir.vbs and Iisftpdr.vbs which are supposed to be stored in a system folder. The link i referred for this information is [URL] jst when i was hoping to use process.start() method to execute this script in, i realized that the script file could not be found on my system. I m not sure if i m using the correct method to achieve my task.

Configuration :: 3.5 Deployment Without Virtual Directory?
First of all, I am trying to deploy a web application, without virtual directory. Yes...I have noother option but to try this due tosomenon-tehnical constraints.

Now, I have developed an ASP.NET 3.5Web application, which works fine on my local ASP.NET Development Web Server.Then, I published the application to the actual webserver using the VS2008 Publish... option. When I got some error messages related to web.config, I removed the corresponding items from the web.config.

When I can access the page but the code inside the page doesn't really work. When I open the Default.aspx, which is directly under the website,I keep on getting this error:

Compiler Error Message: CS0246: The type or namespace name 'DynamicLoadControl' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

This DynamicLoadControl is a class that I have developed and is present in App_CodeDynamicLoadControl.cs file (in the same namespace).

I have searched a lot and tried everything except creating a virtual directory. First of all, is it possible to have 3.5 website without virtual directory.

I am developing an ASP.NET 3.5 website using Visual Studio 2008 professional on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine. The website is hosted on the local machine IIS with no problems at all.

Configuration :: How To Give C# Worker Access To Virtual Directory
I'm totally stuck. I've tried many ways. I have a webapplication deployed on Win2003 with IIS 6.0. The website needs to access:

D:data on another PC.

I've sucessfully created a virtual directory (using local credentials to the data PC) in IIS and I am fully able to browse and view all the files. So now the webserver is: WebserverData.

In my behind code, I call filestream f = (Server.MapPath("WebserverDatasomedata.txt")));

and it tells me access to that location: \webserverdatasomedata.txt is DENIED. BUT I am able to browse on the Win2k3 IIS server.

I've set impersonation to true and used local username and password of the data PC. I've configured IIS to use the same username password.

Configuration :: IIS6 Virtual Directory And Separate Application Pool?
Our website has all of the publicly accessible pages at the root and private pages (login required) in a folder below the root (call it "private").Private pages are accessed as want to run the pagesin the private folder in a separate application pool without changing the URL for private users.I tried making the private folder a virtual directory but then the pages in the private folder did not render(I think because it did not find a web.config in the private folder).Is the answer to simply put a copy of the web.config that resides at the root in the private folder or is that problematic?

Configuration :: Virtual Directory Targeting Newer Framework Version Than Parent Site?
There is an existing 2.0 app on an IIS 6 server. I need to add a feature/page to this site (third party app, don't have source code). I'm creating my tool in VS targeting dotnet 4. For end user convenience I need my tool to be available within the same url namespace as this .net 2.0 app. I assumed I would just create a new virtual directory within this existing app to put my app. But I hadn't thought about the different framework versions.... the web server does have v 4 installed. So can I create my virtual directory and host my v4 tool there, within the v2 website?

anything I should be aware of to make that work?

Installation :: Development To Web Movement: Directory Listing Denied - This Virtual Directory Does Not Allow Contents To Be Listed
I made a web form on a development website of mine (we'll call it and tried to publish it out to the web (we'll call it [URL]) in a subfolder. I named it default.aspx like I was supposed to and it worked flawlessly on the dev site. When I published it out the web, I wound up getting the following error when trying to get to the subfolder: [URL] Directory Listing Denied

This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed. Confused and flustered, I tried to go to [URL], but I wound up with some error that won't tell me the problem. Instead it tells me to change the my web.config to read <customErrors mode="Off"/>.

Why Necessary To Create Virtual Directory In IIS When Website Content Is Placed In IIS Root Directory
As virutal directory points to physical path of the application, so if the IIS root directory is C:inetpubwwwroot and the application is stored at D:websites, than we need to create a virtual directory but if the application content is placed at C:inetpubwwwroot, then why still need to create virtual directory.

Virtual Directory In IIS To Physical Path
My basic question is, can a virtual directory in IIS point to a physical path that's not on the local machine? For instance, right now I have a virtual path /NaturalGasReport/NYMEX which points to physical path C:Program Files (x86)NymexSettleNATGAS_REPORTNYMEX, but I want it to point to a physical path on a difference PC on the same network. Is this possible? (I know I can just try it out so I apologize for asking but I thought it would be best to get an explanation along with "yes" or "no"). If you want more detail, this is what I need to do. To make a long story short, because of a vendor product we are using that won't run on a 64-bit operating system, I have to run a program called Generate_NGReportData.vbs (it's a vbscript program) on a PC I will call 28. It uses a vendor product which produces jpg files which are graphs of the Natural Gas market. The machine where I wish it could run is called RTEST01 but this machine runs a 64-bit OS and the components won't work there. RTEST01 has the databases. So, I created a datasource on 28 which points to RTEST01's database. The vbs program will read the data, generate the reports, and write one row to a database table on RTEST01. RTEST01 has to run the complimentary program which sends these reports (via email). 28 is not an email server so it can't email the reports. So on RTEST01 I will run Send_NaturalGasReport.vbs. This program creates an email body of html. The html references [URL]NaturalGasReport/NYMEX/" & Day(nymex_update_dt) & ".jpg which is a virtual directory pointing to C:Program Files (x86)NymexSettleNATGAS_REPORTNYMEX. I need it to point to the folder and files on 28.So if my initial question has a simple yes answer then I am all set. If not, examine my architecture and propose an alternative solution.

Virtual Directory - 403 Forbidden Error - How To Fix It
I have IIS 6 running on a win2k3 server.

I setup our webserver at work with a virtual directory so it goes to

The physical directory is d:/inetbub/Books

I placed a simple index.html file in the directory.

When I access the URL, for some reason it asks for a username/password. I put it my account information for my domain but I get a 403 forbidden.

Installation :: Is IIS Needed For Virtual Directory
ASP.Net 2.0 C# website. I created the site in VS2005 and am not using IIS to run/debug the local site. I am using the ASP.Net dev server built into VS2005.I seem to be having issues with the virtual directory on the server: wwwRoot. When I create an Access DataSource and steer it to the database it uses path notation like so in the aspx page: DataFile="~/DB/Events.mdb". The tilde, I assume, points to the virtual directory. Since I have no virtual directory set up locally the path to the database it resolves like so on the server: 'C:WebsitesmyWebsitewwwRootDBEvents.mdb'

How can I set the local folder wwwRoot as a virtual directory from inside VS2005? I know I can do it via IIS but really, seriously want to avoid that route as I need to give hair and blood samples, and pledge my first-born, to our security folks before I can run IIS.

C# Virtual Directory For Common Markup?
I have a few applications that need to share a common set of markup.

Scenario: I might have,, and On all sites, /care/contact-us.aspx and /care/faqs.aspx will be exactly the same, but every other page will be totally different.

Issue: I'm attempting to not duplicate the .aspx files for each of these sites and would like to have a /care virtual directory that would include contact-us.aspx and faqs.aspx that each of these sites would use. I have seen this post from Scott Gu, but I'm looking for any other solutions/ideas.

Question 1: What would be the best way to set this up to share the /care directory?

Question 2: Any about also sharing the code behind.

Background, if you care: In a legacy application (asp classic/vbscript), we have the ability to use a /common virtual directory for sites to share common markup and code (since they're all mixed together in .asp files).

How To Rewrite To A Virtual Directory With A Different Application
I have a CMS application that manages multiple websites, today whenever i change the codebehind of one of these websites - i have to rebuild the dll for all websites, deploy it - this disconnects all current sessions and is really bad.

The iis is configured to listen to all domain requests, if the request is to one of the websites' domain , the application rewrites it, or example, if someone requests for, and is configured in the application to be website 12, it is rewritten to

This is done for all websites.

We want to seperate the dlls of the websites from each other, and from the main CMS, we have a virtual directory to each websites, but when trying to rewrite to it, we discover that IIS support this (we get an "Could not load type '_12._Default'". error).

How can we perform this rewrite so it does rewrite to virtual directories, or if anyone has any other solution for the initial dll seperation problem.

How To Create A Virtual Directory Under A Website
I was running it directly from Visual studio which resulted in this error :) I can clearly see the images when I run it directly from IIS!

I've created a website under IIS and have successfuly pointed it to my project. The path to my project under IIS is:


I, then created a virtual directory under website cartoon named cartoon_images but it creates it under localhost:36011/cartoon_images/ instead of localhost:36011/cartoon/cartoon_images/

As you can see, virtual directory is under the website "cartoon" but I can't access it as cartoon/cartoon_images/

I'll need to give links to this virtual folder but I can't do it in this case if I'm not mistaken.

Can't Get FCKEditor To Work In A Virtual Directory
I have a WebForm that contains the following definition for the FCKeditor:

<FCKeditorV2:FCKeditor ID="txtBody" runat="server"

This works fine in my VS2008-based web application. However, when I deploy it to a Virtual Directory in IIS, it looks for the FCKEditor files (e.g. javascript, stylesheets, etc...) in the /fckeditor folder, not in the /MyVirtualDir/fkceditor.

I've tried changing the BasePath to ~/fckeditor/, but then it won't work on my dev machine.

What is the right way to go, so that the FCKEditor maps onto the right directory. In my project the fckeditor directory is right off the root.
