AdamsAdmin or AdamsWeb 

Error: Unrecognized attribute type

When AdamsAdmin or AdamsWeb is accessed from IE on the server (has to be run there to see the error) the contents of the web.config file are displayed along with an error:

Unrecognized attribute 'type'.
<sectionGroup name="microsoft.web" type="Microsoft.Web.Configuration.MicrosoftWebSectionGroup, Microsoft.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35">

The issue is that ASP.NET 1.1 is being used not 2.0.

Check the ASP.NET version on the affected app.  If it already is set to 2.0 then:

  • Change it to 1.1
  • Stop and Start the pool
  • Change it back to 2.0
  • Stop and Start the pool
