Problem testing website on iis
hi i created a simple website on asp.net and i tested it and it works fine on visual studio but when i try to test it on iis it does not work it returns an error
I'm testing it on my laptop and i have the iis that is installed in window 7
Server Error in '/cse' Application.
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Line 19: <authentication mode="Forms">
Source File: C:\Users\jb\try\web.config Line: 17
looks like the problem is that my web config is set to net 4 and the iis application pool is set to 2 so i tried to change the application pool to 4 but it didn't help and it seems the page is still running on because on the bottom of the error it says
Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.5420; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.5420
so maybe there is a different way to change the net
i also tried to change the config file to net 2 but it also failed to work
any ideas help?

I don't have any suggestions, sorry. Often googling for the exact error message turns up help from others who have had similar problems.

It seems that you havent configured .net 4 properly. Please reinstall it again. If you see an error message, your site should be working on .net 4 version.
