Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
You may get this error when trying to browse an asp.net application. The debug information shows that "This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS." However, this error occurs primarily out of 2 scenarios. 1. When you create an new web application using visual studio.net, it automatically creates the virtual directory and configures it as an application. However, if you manually create the virtual directory and it is not configured as an application, then you will not be able to browse the application and may get the above error. The debug information you get as mentioned above, is applicable to this scenario. To resolve it, Right Click on the virtual directory - select properties and then click on "Create" next to the "Application" Label and the textbox. It will automatically create the "application" using the virtual directory's name. Now the application can be accessed. 2. When you have sub-directories in your application, you can have web.config file for the sub-directory. However, there are certain properties which cannot be set in the web.config of the sub-directory such as authentication, session state (you may see that the error message shows the line number where the authentication or sessionstate is declared in the web.config of the sub-directory).

SQL 2005 "Class Not Registered" error when saving a Maintenance Plan


We are running SQL 2005 Standard Edition SP3 on a single server. Anytime I attempt to save a maintenance plan, I get a "Class Not Registered" error. I also got this when attempting to edit or delete Maintenance Plans created previously, when this functionality was working. On this server there is a SQL Server 2000 as the default instance, and the SQL Server 2005 is a named instance.

Looking at other posts everywhere, installing SP2 or SP3 can break the ability to create or edit Maintenance Plans. I can confirm that SSIS is running and that I can now connect to Integration Services in Mainagement Studio (and I was able to delete my old plans in the Integration Services). There was a problem with this which was cured by manually registering dts.dll and msDtsSrvrUtil.dll in the DTS/Binn folder. I wonder if I need to manually register any more DLLs.

I tried taking the suggestion from another thread and installing the .NET Framework 2.0 from: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=B44A0000-ACF8-4FA1-AFFB-40E78D788B00, but I received the message that it is already installed.  How do I get past this error?

COMM Interop object throws "80040154 Class not registered" error in IIS7


I have enherited a classic VB6 ojject that has been wrapped to run as an Interop in .NET. It is working fine when I instantiate it in the Visual Studio web (Cassini), but throws a "80040154 Class not registered" error when I attempt to test the same web app in IIS7 on the same workstation (Windows 7 / 64-bit). It is obviously registered as it works fine in Cassini, so appears to be some kind of permission problem related to running it is IIS (registry access?).

Is anyone familier with this problem and know of a solution?

Oracle 10

Page created with VS2010
ASP.NET v4.0


When I created my website I downloaded the Oracle Database Access Component and the Oracle Tools for VS. Everything worked fine in development and running from the VS development server everything works perfect.

However when I deployed the site to IIS the site works fine until I attempt to open a page that has an oracle bound gridview in it. I then received the following error;

IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:

Inserting personal error message in ValidationSummary



I am creating a web form that requires a lot of validation. I use many of the validation control in asp.net already like RequiredFieldValidator and CompareValidator. 

My Problem: after my custom validation for the value entered return an error message, and I pressed enter key when the field is empty, my custom error message is overlapped by my ValidationSummary. 

Setting my custom error to visible = false on button click also does not seem to work as it requires for me to enter the value first.

This made me think, is there a way to insert my custom validation inside the ValidationSummary as an error message like for other validation control?

Thanks in advance

Jscript error: Object does not support property or method


 Hi, i have little knowledge on javascript but i need to use this code get from somewhere for a jquery to work.

I face this "Jscript runtime error: Object does not support property or method" whenever im trying to run this page.

In my experience, im get this error msg 9 out of 10 times i use javascript in my system.

Im using Microsoft Visual web developer 2008, i wonder if this is related to my problem, i not sure there is anything i need to add as reference or update anything.

But anyway, in short, i just couldn't use javascript code when using this development tool because of this sort of error.

Anyway, it happen that last time i tried use the same type of jquery code in another project and it seems to work well without an error.

But now when im try to use it again in this recent project i created, it come out with this error and i have no idea how to solve it even look through google and this forum.

It doesn't really seems like its the code problem itself although im not sure, because any javascript code just couldn't work.

So below is my code that i need to use.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=&quo

Type or namespace error.


A couple of days ago I started getting an unusual behavior when compiling Website projects. I have referenced class libraries added to my bin folder that are also correctely referenced in using statements in my aspx.cs code behind. When I compile, I get the

error message that would typically be received when the dll has not been added as a reference or added in a using statement.

I can eliminate the error by adding an


HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden


(VB Express website directed me to ASP.NET Web Services which in turn redirected me to this forum).

 Hopefully someone can help me here...... 

I am using VIsual Web Developer and downloaded the small business application to use as a starting point to help my wife get a website up for her small business. When I load the application, I can F5 and it runs fine but as soon as I make any modification to the app and hit F5, I get the HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden when it tries to show the website.

I notice a pop up that occurs when I run that allows me to choose the link for my app and it displays correctly (I close the webpage that has the error on it).

This seems like a pain, is there a setting I'm missing - I would think that this should "just work".

What's up?????

Insert Error not helpful



I am using VS2010

When I try to updated or insert a record in my User table I am getting an error that does not make sense to me and I cannot figure out what is wrong.

Also, when I try to insert a new record I get a validation error saying that the Id is required. However it is an identity field in the db so it should not be necessary to send it to the server.

Could you please shed some light?
