I built a little app over the last couple of days, and the first time I deployed to a real machine I saw :

Server Error in ‘/XYZ’ Application.

Configuration Error

There is a clue though …  See the ASP.Net version information?  I changed that in IIS to 2.0, and refreshed my browser.. bingo.. my app … LIVES!
