  • Plesk 11.5 for Windows


The following error message is displayed in browser:

The current identity (WINPLESK5\IWAM_plesk(default)) does not have write access to 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files'.


Microsoft KB article explains why this issue can occur.

It says the cause of the issue are missing Modify permissions on the folder "C:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\ v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files" for "Network Service" user.


Necessary permissions can be added with the commands in cmd.exe:

mkdir "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files"

icacls "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files" /grant "Network Service":(m)

However if this directory is NTFS Junction, it does not help. To list Junctions in a directory, "dir /aL" command can be used:

dir /aL C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727
15/07/2014  02:01 a.m.    <JUNCTION>     Temporary ASP.NET Files [F:\Temp\Microsoft.NET\v2.0]

So target directory is a Junction pointing to the directory "F:\Temp\Microsoft.NET\v2.0" which should be configured.

Creating the folder F:\Temp\Microsoft.NET\v2.0 with "Modify" permission for "Network Service" user:

mkdir F:\Temp\Microsoft.NET\v2.0

icacls F:\Temp\Microsoft.NET\v2.0 /grant "Network Service":(m)
