Be more specific .... from where should i Right Click... Is it from VS or from IIS Manager ? I tried everything, and this thing is driving me Nuts!
Why is this CRAP so complicated? There is not a different way to get your page running right away without all this
Anyway, thank you for your effort ?

This is a rather old thread, but I'm having the same problem, and unfortunately this reply for how to find the virtual directory to right-click on it didn't help me. I can find Default Web Site under IIS, but there is no virtual directory there... The original
suggested solution was: "To resolve it, Right Click on the virtual directory - select properties and then click on
"Create" next to the "Application" Label and the textbox. It will automatically create the "application" using the virtual directory's name. Now the application can be accessed."
But I don't know if this doesn't apply to me. I have never ever had to access IIS before. I have simply created a web site in Visual Studio, used the environment "local host" for testing, and then deployed the whole site to a web host. Note that I'm getting
this error when trying to set the machineKey in the local host environment, I haven't even tried to upload it to the web host yet.

I am getting the error even after removing the duplicate web.Config file.
I have my site hosted.

the main reason i found behind this that u have not configured ur website on IIS
HERE is the solution:
just go to control panel->IIS->websites->your app name->right click on it->properties->your app name and click create ->again your app name and ok
please mark as answer if it helps

For users of Silverlight if you have upgraded from SL3 VS 2008 to 4 and VS 2010 you may find that you get this error you should make sure the folder is set in IIS as described in this post
<authentication mode="Windows" /> is in the web.config in your root and the xx.Web folder this can cause the error.
I AM NO EXPERT
but if you move the line <authentication mode="Windows" /> from the xx.Web folder copy to the copy in the root you should be OK, it does make sense that authentication is in the root

How did you solve it?

just do what Pratham Jain says earlier then move the line : <authentication
from the web.config in your .web folder to the web.config in your application root
This is only for Silverlight I cannot help beyond what has been said before if you are just using ASP
