I've knocked up a simple web application that lists all files or a particular type in a particular folder and renders them as a series of LinkButtons in a ListView control - when the user clicks on a LinkButton, the relevant file is streamed to the user. I've done this a dozen times in ASP Classic, but this is a new ASP.NET version.
When I run this on my development machine, it runs fine - but now I've set it up on the live server I'm experiencing problems:
"Access denied to 'X:\mydir\'. Failed to start monitoring file changes"
The application is configured (currently) to use Anonymous Authentication, but eventually it will use Windows Authentication.
Having looked at the permissions situation, I can confirm that the ASPNET user and the IUSR_ServerName users have permissions to the parent of the application (and everything underneath).
The host server is Windows Server 2003 R2.
