Hi folks, I have been dealing with some issues trying to deploy my web application on a Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0 server. Luckily for me, the application is now working like a charm, and the solution to the error messages was easier than expected.

After adding my Website and virtual directories in the IIS Manager, I surfed to the default aspx page and got the following error message:

The current identity (NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE) does not have write access to 'C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files'.

After hours of looking for a solution on the internet I found the following one:

1.- On the server machine, go to Start

2.- Click run, and type cmd / command in the textbox and run.

3.- Type the following line: c:\Windows\\framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis -ga "NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE"

Note: You have to be the Administrator or have according rights on the server. Additionally you have to understand the security issues this may brings into the server.
