The ASP.NET site administration service is not supported.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Let me explain you all, in brief about my project. I am using the ASP.Net web site, administration tool with Microsoft Expression Web for my project. I am trying to do a small modification on the link and I am presented with a dialog box, that it is not supported.

Is ASP.NET website administration service not supported in Microsoft Expression web 4?
Do I have a different way to modify the link in this version?

Here is a viable solution that would not have you install third party applications, that would increase your work time on your project and instead would have you utilize the existing tools and applications you already are working with. You would need to create a shortcut to launch the ASP.NET Web Site Administration Tool for use with your Expression Web version.
Creating the shortcut
  • Right-click on your Desktop and click New > Shortcut.
  • Enter this command line into the shortcut path as one line. This is configured for Expression Web 5 for Windows 7 x32.
"C:Program FilesMicrosoft ExpressionWeb DesignerEXPRWD.exe" /port:65000 /path:"C:WindowsMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv4.0.30319ASP.NETWebAdminFiles" /vpath:"/wsat"
NOTE: This was configured for Expression Web 12.0 for Windows 7 x32. If you are using a different version, please change the path information accordingly.
  • Click NEXT.
  • Type in a name for the shortcut and;
  • Click FINISH.
This shortcut will now launch the Web Designer so that it can be used for the ASP.NET administration tool. 
Initiating the ASP.NET Admin tool:
This is the syntax to initiate the admin tool to point to your link URL:
If you are using the admin tool, to manage a site located at C:UsersDonaldWeb SitesMy Site, you would enter the following URL:
http://localhost:65000/wsat/default.aspx?applicationPhysicalPath=C:UsersDonaldWeb SitesMy Site&applicationUrl=/My Site
The ASP.NET admin tool accepts web site names with spaces and auto corrects them to work properly for you. Upon entering your site URL, the Admin tool GUI will open for you, without the error you have encountered before.
You can now manage your link without any error messages anymore.
Hope this helps.
