HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error 0x8007052e


I copied an MVC project from another development pc to my laptop and tried to deploy it on the laptop which gave this error. The user account password was changed recently prior to this error. I tried tinkering around with the app pool permissions for the root folders with no effect. Any ideas? I am stuck.

I ended up reinstalling visual studio and eventually got everything working.

  1. Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager (Start > Run > type "inetmgr").
  2. Using the navigation pane on the left, browse to Sites > Default Web Site.
  3. Right-click on Default Web Site and select Manage Web Site > Advanced Settings.
  4. Set the Physical Path Credentials field to Application user (you must enter user and password).
  5. Click OK and then OK again.
  6. Right-click on Default Web Site and select Manage Web Site > Restart to refresh the changes that were just made.
  7. At this point you should be able to reload the page in your browser.
