Question When I run a .NET page, I get a .NET "Configuration Error" stating that "It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level." What's up with that?
Answer This error generally indicates that you've got code in a directory that's not been defined to .NET (by way of IIS) to be an "application". Some xml directives in the .NET web.config file cannot be run in a simple directory, and can only be executed in an "application" root (whether a web site root, a virtual directory root, or an application declared in IIS to be an "application").

To solve this problem, declare the directory to be an application. This notion of declaring a directory is discussed further in the manual, Deploying CFML on ASP.NET.
