    Re: web.config does not recognize <applicationInitialization> tag

    Jun 08, 2012 11:49 PM|ahmels|LINK

    the .NET version is irrelevant to how the Application Initialization tags are recognized

    please make sure you have the <applicationInitialization> tag in the correct place in web.config

    for example:
    <system.webServer>
            <applicationInitialization skipManagedModules="true" remapManagedRequestsTo="startup.asp">
                <add initializationPage="default.aspx" />
            </applicationInitialization>
    </system.webServer>

    you can also check the IIS schema folder for to make sure the appwarmup_schema.xml file is there
