Hi,

We are runing ASP.NET 1.1 Application under IIS 6.0 in Windows Server
2003.We have only one page in which Ajax is implemented using AjaxPro
framework in the whole project. The page was runing without any issue till
two days back.

If we access the Page in which Ajax is implemeted we are getting the
following error.

Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as
allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error
can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application
in IIS.

Source Error:

Line 244:          "Forms", "Passport" and "None"
Line 245:    -->
Line 246:      <authentication mode="Windows" />
Line 247:      <!--  AUTHORIZATION
Line 248:          This section sets the authorization policies of the
application. You can allow or deny access

Source File: C:\apps\EDCSAdmin\web.config    Line: 246

recently .NET 3.5 has been installed on the Same Production Server.

Please guide me to resolve this issue If you have any clue.

Itz highly appreciated on any input given on this issue.
