I published a website using VS2005 to Win2k Server. No errors were generated. When I visit the page, I see this error:
Failed to start monitoring changes to 'E:\path\to\bin' because access is denied.
I logged in to the box with an Administrator account - and the folder won't let me change permissions or even view the files! It says "access denied".
I'm a little stumped because this error is preventing the application from running.
Update: When I right-click on the folder and choose "properties" - the security tab doesn't even show up - I can't get to this folder with any account on the box. I'm really stumped (and a bit worried)
Update2: Tried to take ownership through the parent folder - access denied. Tried to use the Security Policy editor and reset NTFS permissions - "The data is invalid" error. What in the world did Visual Studio screw up - and why in the world is Win2k preventing all access to these folders?!
Update3: I created a new folder on the server and changed the location of the .NET application's virtual directory so I can at least get it back up and running. I'm still stuck with this rogue folder that I can't do anything with.
