The element 'buildProviders' cannot be defined below the application level

I was scratching my head on this one.... This error means that the element can only be present on the web.config placed on the top level folder of an application dir. In my situation I had a website(as opposed to a project) underneath another website. I had a sub directory withint my site and this sub directory isn't configured in IIS as a web application. I placed it in it's own root level directory and problem was solved

Very frustrating when you can't see your errors! If you are running classic ASP page and are receiving this error; "An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. Perform the following steps":

  1. Start an elevated command prompt. Right-click the command shell item in the Start-Accessories menu and select "Run as Administrator".
  2. Run the following command: %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:asp -scriptErrorSentToBrowser:true
