Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\xxx\aa.xml' is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via , the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.

Hit above error when trying to write a xml file in the web server. I've tried to set write permission for both internet guest user & also ASP.NET user but still the same.

Finally, i add into web.config and the problem solve.
<identity impersonate="true"/>

syntax

<configuration>
<system.web>
<identity impersonate="true"/>
</system.web>
</configuration >



I'm not sure why, to know more, please check on
