While trying to configure an ASP.NET Web Application using the Web Site Administration Tool in Visual Studio I encountered the following error:
An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page and try again.
The following message may help in diagnosing the problem:
System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: A configuration file cannot be created for the requested Configuration object.
at System.Configuration.MgmtConfigurationRecord.SaveAs(String filename, ConfigurationSaveMode saveMode, Boolean forceUpdateAll)
at System.Configuration.Configuration.SaveAsImpl(String filename, ConfigurationSaveMode saveMode, Boolean forceSaveAll)
at System.Configuration.Configuration.Save(ConfigurationSaveMode saveMode)
at System.Web.Administration.WebAdminPage.SaveConfig(Configuration config)
Is the ConfigurationErrorsException really helpful? Actually not, because it's not a configuration error the admin tool encounters but rather a compatibility issue. Consider the path the project is located in, it begins with: D:\Benutzer\Alexander Groß\…. The admin tool doesn't expect paths containing special characters like my last name's "ß".
To work around the issue I created a junction named D:\Benutzer\agross pointing to D:\Benutzer\Alexander Groß and lo and behold, the Web Site Administration tool works now.
