Server Error in '/GroupPolicyGuardian' Application.

Server Error occurs when you attempt to run GPG Reporting after Installation.

An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "C:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET Files\GroupPolicyGuardian\532bd104\f21344e2" is denied.

This issue typically occurs when you install ASP.NET before Active Directory, for example, if you promote the server to the role of domain controller after you install ASP.NET. When you promote the server, the access control list (ACL) permissions that you configured during the ASP.NET installation are modified, and all ASP.NET applications are affected by this change.


To resolve this problem, use the ASP.NET IIS Registration Tool (aspnet_regiis.exe) to reset the ASP.NET ACLs.

To reset the ASP.NET ACLs:

  1. On the domain controller, click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
  3. Type cd drive:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework, where drive is the drive that Windows is installed on, and then press Enter.
  4. Type dir, and then press Enter.
  5. Note the folder names that are listed, and then locate the folder name that begins with the letter v. This folder indicates the version of .NET Framework that is installed on your computer.
  6. Type cd VersionFolderName, where VersionFolderName is the folder that you noted in Step 5, and then press Enter.
  7. Type aspnet_regiis.exe -i, and then press Enter.
  8. After the command completes, you can launch the GPG Reporting console.

Note: This information can also be obtained from the GPG 2.0 release notes.
