Deployment Solution


After installation of the Web console the URL returns the standard .NET message:

Server Error in '/DSWeb' Application.


This error indicates that the C# component, csc.exe, is failing to write its temporary files into its temporary directory.


To validate this error, change the web.config that exists under the DSWeb folder and turn off <customErrors mode = "Off" just as the .NET error page shows. Then refresh the Deployment Solution Web Console. You should see something like this:

Server Error in '/DSWeb' Application.
Compilation Error
Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately.

Compiler Error Message: CS0016: Could not write to output file 'c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET Files\...dll' -- 'Access is denied. '

To resolve, the TEMP permissions need to be opened up:

  1. Find the global environmental variable for TEMP on this computer by right-clicking on my machine, clicking the Advanced tab > Environment Variables button; the second half of the screen labeled System Variables and scroll down to TEMP to find its location. This is were compiled C code is executed.
  2. Give everyone permission to that folder.
  3. Run IISRESET.
  4. Open the Web console back open.
  5. If its fixed then back out of everyone permissions and make sure Admin, Users, IUSR, IWAM has write permissions.
