Failed to start core 2.1 webapi


Just deploy to IIS server my .NET Core 2.1 webapi. Got error 502.5 HTTP Error 502.5 - Process Failure from the URL http://localhost/api. Open the Event Viewer, it is IIS AspNetCore Module eror.

Application 'MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST/DEFAULT WEB SITE/API' with physical root 'C:\apps\api\' failed to start process with commandline 'dotnet .\Webapi.dll', ErrorCode = '0x8007010b : 0.

Remote to the server and run dotnet .\Webapi.dll successfully.

Any idea please

Error code 0x8007010b means IIS could not find dotnet.exe but i havr all dotnetcore frameworks installed. Finally the issue is the windows previdge. The default account for iis pool doesnt have enough power to access the folder c:\dotnet... It is resolved by running more powerful account.
