Help! Running .net 1.1 website on server with .net 2.0

Hi All,

I have problems with running my .net version 1.1 website on a server that has .net version 2.0. Also my database is in sql server 2003 and on the server it is sql server 2005. The error that I am getting is: "unhandled exception..." and "invalid connection..."

Please help! Kindly let me know if I have to modify my web.config file or other changes.

(The website is working properly on my current server with sql server 2003 and .net framework version 1.1. )

Will let you know more details if required.


Regards and thanks.

Map your application to 1.1 (in IIS right click your virtual directory goto tab).

If you have installed Dotnet Frame work 2.0 after 1.1 there is a possibility the IIS will be pointing to 2.0. If version 1.1 is naot available in ASP.Net tab register the 1.1 scripts again (aspnet_regiis.exe -i)
