Hello Friends,

Its not actually an error. Its a message telling you that you cannot view the error.

You have to do the following to resolve this problem.

First setting in the web.config will display you the actual errror. Also check if you have the correct .NET version installed on the server and your \test folder is configured to the right .net version.

If still getting the same error the do the following:

In the IIS, right click on your website and in the properties dialog, click on the ASP.NET tab and set the correct version. For example see the following snap.

If you find this article resolved your problem, please add your comments. You can add your suggesions too.

Vijay Modi

    Hey, Vijay
    I’ve recently run into the same problem. The customErrors mode is “RemoteOnly” and also we have set the right .NET version.

    Our settings:
    SharePoint 2007
    I created a virtual directory on sharepoint 2007 server, when right click the virtual directory, it’s been created an application with apploication name already, but no web.config file in that folder.

    Now when I browse it with servername/virtual directory name, it gives Run time error. I’ve done the changed to the customError to RemoteOnly, but I still don’t see any detailed error on the local server machine, neither does remote machine.

    Can you help me with it? Or can I check event log or something like that to find out the detailed error message??

    Thanks

    Make the customErrors mode=”off” to get the exact problem which caused this error as shown in the below code.

    <!—->

    The main cause for this error would be a wrong path in the url…
    Note that the path you enter is proper as it is case sensitive.
