Sometimes an Aspx application may not work. In this case you may have to change a folder into an ‘application’ via IIS.

Before trying this, follow steps 1 and 2 and proceed to step 3 if it doesn’t work:-
1. Change the ASP verison to 2 from 1.
2. Change the shared application pool to dedicated application pool.

3. If still not working, IIS -> Domain -> On the left hand side of the domain -> Right click the application folder -> Properties -> In the application settings…press create. This will make the folder into an application.

To make MVC apps work, you may need to do the following in the server. This is for IIS 6 [2003 server]

2. The dll file can be found at the following location:-

MS SQL db permissions:-
MS Sql surface area manager. Start -> MS sql server -> Surface area manager
xp_cmdshell, ole performance… enable whatever permissions u need.

1. Place the “.chm file” to the Bin/Debug of your application folder.


2. Create a menu / button and double click it (to the code area) and type the following:

System.Windows.Forms.Help.ShowHelp(Me, “Help.chm”, HelpNavigator.AssociateIndex)

help.chm – the name of ur chm file. if u named it as myapp.chm then u need to type it as myapp.chm (I know its a bit more childish !!! but some required it…;-))

3. Thats all. Now run the app and press the menu / button. it will work 😉
