    Required permissions cannot be acquired

    I've recently installed VS 2003 to work on an existing web project (I already had 2005 and 2008 installed), but I'm getting an annoying problem when I try to run it. I get a browser page with an error message of:

    Code:
    Required permissions cannot be acquired
    It then pinpoints the problem as being in line 198 of my machine.config, which is:

    Code:
    <add assembly=*/>
    I've changed the ASP.Net version to 1.1.4322 in the appropriate places, and other people in the team can run the project happily using an identical machine.config (they used a copy of mine).

    No doubt this requires only a simple tweak, but could anyone volunteer to tell me what that tweak is?

    Thanks...

    Are you in a medium trust environment? Look for a <trust level=.......> somewhere in the machine.config or web.config.

    I guess it was the trust environment, although I couldn't find it specified anywhere in the configs. In the end, I copied everything from the network drive it was on to my C:\ drive, and it now seems happy. All a bit of a rigmarole, though.
