I am new to IIS and trying to set up a site on it. I am trying to set up Microsft.Hosting.SharePoint2010.Services. I keep getting the following error.


Here are my Basic Settings. The physical path is C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Hosting\Microsoft.Hosting.SharePoint2010\Microsoft.Hosting.SharePoint2010.Services which actually exists on the computer. I get the error above when I click the Test Settings button. I suppose for some reason it is not serving this folder. Does anyone have any ideas?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What credentials are being used to connect to that physical location on disk? – Matthew Abbott Sep 20 '11 at 16:58
@Matthew Abbott It is connection as the Application User. It is the full SharePoint administrator. Should have full privileges. – user489041 Sep 20 '11 at 17:59
