I normally work on one box to do my ASP.NET 2.0 development using
Visual Studio 2005.
In order to allow me to work off-site, I copied all of my project folders (using XCOPY) to my laptop hard drive.
Now, when I try to resume development with Visual Studio and try to build the site I get this error:
101 It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.
This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.
I have seen some posts that list this error as being caused by the site not being configured as an application, and doing so solves the problem.
However, in my case, the site is configured as an application but the problem persists.
It is noteworthy to mention that the source site is Windows 2003 server (IIS 6) while the laptop is Windows 2000 professional (IIS 5).
I have tried deleting the site in IIS 5 on the laptop and re-creating it but this error persists.
When I recreate the site in IIS 5, I just point it to the folder which I XCOPY’d.
Can anyone tell me what might be happening?

Site is set for the correct version of the framework? Using a virtual directory or is the app at the site root?

I checked the framework version. It was initially incorrect, but I set it to 2.0.50727, which I think is the latest? I reset IIS and I still have the same error. Any other ideas?
