Hi I created SharePoint web application and added a new Virtual directory and converted to application in IIS, i just added an HTML file when I try to browse this html file i get below error

Exception information: Exception type: EntryPointNotFoundException Exception message: The following errors occurred while attempting to load the app. - For the app startup parameter value 'Microsoft.SharePoint.Owin.Hosting.Startup, Microsoft.SharePoint.Owin.Hosting, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c', the assembly 'Microsoft.SharePoint.Owin.Hosting, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' was not found.

  • This should be tag 2019, because I didn't see that setting in 2016 edition web.config.

Maybe you done it on one FE but you are hitting another FE in browser?

Not sure what your requirements but try this instead:. If you want HTML page to display in Sharepoint crate pages library on a site collection, rename your page to aspx and upload it to that library, now you can browse to it.
