|Steps to reproduce the problem|
The server failed to load application '/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT'. The error was 'General access denied error'.
For additional information specific to this message please visit the Microsoft Online Support site located at:
Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) uses the IWAM_ComputerName user account to start out-of-process applications. However, because the Visual Studio Setup program has removed the Everyone group from the list of authorized users and groups for the Mfc42.dll file, the IWAM_ComputerName user account no longer has the Read & Execute permission for the Mfc42.dll file.
Note ComputerName is a placeholder for the name of your computer.
To grant the Read & Execute permission, follow these steps:
|1.||In Windows Explorer, locate the Mfc42.dll file.|
|2.||Right-click the Mfc42.dll file, and then click Properties. The Properties dialog box appears.|
|3.||Click the Security tab, and then click Add. The Select Users or Groups dialog box appears.|
|4.||In the Name field, locate and then click IWAM_ComputerName.|
|5.||Click Add, and then click OK.|
|6.||Make sure that the Allow check box is selected for the Read & Execute permission, and then click OK.|
Steps to reproduce the problem
|1.||On a computer that is running Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, install Visual Studio 6.0.|
|2.||Start Microsoft Internet Explorer.|
|3.||In the Address box, type http://localhost, and then press ENTER. The Localstart.asp ASP page opens.|
