C# – Configuration section cannot be used at this path

Other day , while accessing my WCF service (i.e., .svc) from IIS server, I was getting below error:

iis_3

Reason:

  • In my case, Issue is with missing ‘Write’ privilege for ‘Windows Authentication’ in IIS server.

Fix:

To fix the issue follow below steps

  • Connect to your IIS server
  • Select the ‘Server node’ (i.e., Your machine name) from left ‘Connections’ pane
  • On the right ‘Features View’ pane, select ‘Feature Delegation’ option

iis_1

  • From the list, select ‘Authentication – Windows’ option and make sure the delegation set to ‘Read\Write’
    • If its only ‘Read’, click on ‘Read/Write’ link from right side ‘Set Feature Delegation’ pane.

iis_2

  • Restart your web app
  • Try to browse the files and they should work now.

iis_4

🙂
