This is the plain error message I get every time I try to access my website, after the First execution of the application.
This means, that If I reset the my app (editing web.conifg, restarting IIS, etc) the first access I have to it, I can navigate through it easily and without any problems. But each and every following access, I don't receive some pictures/graphics/stylesheets,
until I get the infamous:
"The system cannot find the file specified."
and ..... the app dies. Nothing more comes out it.
Nothing is registered in the event logs, the iis app logs just record that everything is delivered with codes 200 (everything OK) or 304 (unchanged), and so on....
No help anywhere on what the problem may be and/or how to solve something like this.
Anyone has a clue???
One more piece of data: the server holds two webistes: Production / Pre Production. the problem is in the Pre Production site, which I'm updating to ASP.NET 2.0. Production is working fine with the old version of the app made with Classic ASP. obviously
I need to make Proprod work in order to migrate to Prod....
Thanks to anyone who can help us...

You wouldn't have urlscan loaded? Look in %windir%\system32\inetsrv\urlscan\logs and see if you find anything. Other than that, I would run Filemon and filter on the worker process ID to see what files it 'can't find'.

No I can't run any of those. It's a production server. Any other clues?

we are also getting the error message "The requested resource is in use." when asking for classic ASP resources....
It's really a strane behaviour from the server. The first time the application is requested, that session gets complete access to everything and works, perfectly.
Now when a second request on the web app is made, first some files are not delivered to the client - such as images and/or Style sheets/ .js - and then thebald message "The system cannot find the file specified. " and that's all we get ....
until the next app restart.
IIS log files register as if they have delivered the requested files, including their size and time, but nothing is received by the client.
It's really driving us crazy.
