I have just installed Visual Studio 2010 trial. Previously I have been using Visual Studio Web Developer 2010 Express. Now every time I try to invoke the ASP.net Cofiguration tool either via the icon or through the Project File Menu item, I get the error
message "An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page and try again." I am trying to develop a bog standard Silverlight Business Application. There are no other diagnostics. Is there anywhere I can look for more clues or anything else to do
to alleviate the problem? or is this something peculiar to the trial version I am using?
I also think it might have something to do with the fact that I have created this Silverlight Business App on a directory on my D: drive and not the normal, default c: drive path and maybe the web sit admin tool is looking somewhere else. Could this have
something to do with it? If so what is my remedy?

I have confirmed now that it is something to do with the fact that I am on a different drive or location for my project. I reproduced the whole project in the usual place on my C: drive and am now able to access the ASP.net Web Site Administration tool.
However, I would still be interested to know how to overcome this problem with my project on a different location and/or drive...

(1)some other characters in the path name will cause the same issue.
(2)You should check to make sure that all of the permissions are set correctly, that your application is running in full trust and so forth.
Please check the following link:

I've been having the same problem and I think I've found out why. Visual studio tries to send the browser to:
http://localhost:<port>/asp.netwebadminfiles/default.aspx?applicationPhysicalPath=<path to webapp>&applicationUrl=/
However, <path to webapp> is has not been url encoded, so the browser and admin tool will have problems with invalid characters on the path. You can test this by url encoding your application's path and trying out the url above. It worked for my case, it
may work for yours too.

Dude, thanks - you're a lifesafer. Manually copying the file-path from explorer and pasting it into the URL you provided above worked. Thanks!

This thread is a little old but it might make sense to piggy back on it.
I'm experimenting with the asp membership framework. Most of it seems to work ok.
But like many others before me, in posts going back 4 years or more, clicking on a rule to attempt to manage it (change the location or delete it) gets this nasty error just like the OP.
I have a hard time understanding how such a basic fault could be existing in all these iterations of vs (I'm using vs 2010 pro).
There are no unusual characters in the path to my website. I'm using vs to test this not a production site and the path is as simple as c:\inetput\wwwroot\mysite\

Have a look at the below URL. It seems it is a know issue and has been reported to Microsoft to look into the issue,
