Failed to map the path '/admin/App_LocalResources/'.

Mar 6, 2010 at 11:16 PM

Environment: Server 2008, SQL 2005 on VMWare host.  I get this error when trying to do any admin functions: "Failed to map the path '/admin/App_LocalResources/'.

 

I'm suspecting some sort of ASP settings issue with IIS7, but I'm not sure where to begin.  Anyone have any insight?

After some more searching I fixed this with the help of another post:

 

Here is a little more detailed record of what I did to fix this:
  1. Goto IIS manager from Control Panel->Administration Tools
  2. Under the drop down on the left, selection Application Pools
  3. Click DefaultAppPool in the new view.
  4. Right Click -> Select Set Application Pool Defaults
  5. Find Process Model -> Identity -> Built-In account -> LocalSystem
  6. Restart the webserver
This is what worked for me, I hope it helps!!
