I have a problem with my website. When I click it gives me the subjected error(404 unable to find directory or file Error in ASP).
ex: My website name is and there is a link on page
When I click it it goes to http://ABC.Com/B_Folder/B.aspx link then the error comes up.
I have verified that the folder B_Folder and B.aspx file is available in that folder.
I need help why this error come up.
What I am doing wrong.
here is my view: I am setting some permission for the folder but don't know if it is causing the problem.

You've probably denied access to that folder. Try removing your deny="*" or however else you have the protection setup. Remove it, check that it works and then work from there.

Please try to run that page independently as start up page and check whether the code everything in it is correct or not.
2. Another possibility is that are ou sending any paramters to that page which typically consists of special characters?

Can you check if there is any virtual directory present for the website.

Have you created the virtual directory for B_Folder.

Another way is to get the folders placed in Inetpub/wwwroot folder , wwwroot is the default directory for websites. earlier versions of windows have this automatically created in c drive. for older version you would have to install the IIS to get you website running and these folder created automatically.

I have managed to solve it by giving the permission to IUSER the B_Folder was not accessible to the IUSR,so I gave full permission to this user and other users.

But still searching why this IUSR needs permissions.
