Which does XML file throw this issue? It seems that the XML's schema does not match this XML.

In your case, you can try to create a new XML in Visual Studio 2005, and copy the content to this new one.


I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for reply.

 Your solution was not working as problem cause is different.

Error is for <dpapiSettings xsi:nil="true" /> xml tag.

I have web,config file of  .NET 2003 decrupted by DPAPI, i'm using same for 2005 but its not working. How to decrupt web.config encrypted by DPAPI?

actual error message is :

Error parsing configuration file at line#123 . xsi:nil attribute on dpapiSetting is invalid.

Please correct before procedding

(You might rename current web.config and add new one.) 

where line is#123 is <dpapiSettings xsi:nil="true" />

 Thanks is advance.

Upgrade/migration issues from VS2003+.NET 1.1 to VS2005+.NET 2.0
Hi,  Visual Studio is great when everything works well and you don't know what is happening under the hood. However when things don't work it is really frustrating since you just don't know what is going on.  I have a project (a web site) that was originally developed for VS2003 and ASP.NET 1.1. When I loaded this project on VS2005 (and ASP.NET 2.0), VS told me that it will migrate it to the new environment: it did a number of things, generated a migration report and created/moved files under App_code and such directories. I tried this process a number of times b...

Migrating VS2003 to VS2005.
Hello, I have recently migrated VS2003 web application(ASP.NET 1.0) to VS2005 (ASP.NET2.0). But after migration I am getting an error saying a particular DLL is not defined. How do I register this DLL in the server so that I can overcome this problem. Note: I have migrated the application which is in different machine(i.e., Shared drive).   Thanks, Renil. You don't have to register the dll on the server.  Just put it in your App_Code folder  and then add a reference to it in Solution Explorer.
