I am inheriting a .NET application. For starters I have copied the source to my machine and opened the solution with Visual Studio. Upon running the project I see the following error:
HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid. Detailed Error Information: Module IIS Web Core Notification Unknown Handler Not yet determined Error Code 0x80070003 Config Error Cannot read configuration file Config File \\?\path\not\on\my\machine\web.config
The problem seems to be that the path referred to by "Config File" is not the path to the file on my machine. The path seems to be from an IIS server on which the app was deployed.
I've seen others with similar problems, but in my search I have been unable to find this reference so that I may update it.
Visual Studio (2015) itself seems to respond to changes I make in web.config, particularly when I change this
<compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0"> from true to false.
How can I change my project set up to allow the application to run on my machine?
