ASP Generates Permission Denied Errors in Event Log for Global.asa
Earlier versions of ASP executed events in the security context (or user identity) of the host process because there is no user context during these events. This caused problems, such as access denied errors when writing to a file in the Session_OnEnd event. ASP, by default, now runs the global.asa events, Application_OnEnd and Session_OnEnd, anonymously (the default value is true).
To change this setting programmatically, see AspRunOnEndAnonymously.
CGI Processes Will Not Start
If your CGI processes do not run, ensure that the CGI Web service extension has been enabled. See Requests for Dynamic Content Return 404 Error in this topic. Also, CGIs will not start unless the account on which the CGI processes run are assigned certain user rights. You can add the account as a member of the IIS_WPG group and assign the account the following two user rights:
Â Â Â Adjust memory quotas for a process.
Â Â Â Replace a process level token.
