Today I faced a strange issue, after publishing an empty ASP.NET MVC application to Azure WebSite.
When I tried to browse the page I got an exception like this -
Attempt by security transparent method ‘System.Web.WebPages.Administration.SiteAdmin.RegisterAdminModule()’ to access security critical method ‘System.Web.WebPages.ApplicationPart..ctor(System.Reflection.Assembly, System.String)’ failed.
Here is the screenshot
This issue was resolved by changing the file publish options.
Select the “Remove additional files at destination” checkbox.
Happy Programming :)
