Situation

How do I remedy a failure on the Website and Virtual Directory Permissions check?

Resolution

The check searches the web virtual directories with granted permissions to write, execute or source access.

Open the properties of this web virtual directory.
Choose the Home Directory tag.
Search the Application Settings area .
Set the Execute permissions area to None.
Press the OK button.
