[SOLVED] Where is the IIS Express install directory?


I have recently started an asp.net tutorial, and I want to test my page that I made with WebMatrix. How ever, there’s an error:

The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.

So it suggests to Enable directory browsing and go to the IIS Express install directory and run a command.

So where is this located exactly?


The user Data files are present here:


If that’s the error. Then you might have got the error 404.13 (Forbidden) on your browser.

You can try to edit the web.config file and add this:

   <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true"/>

This would allow the server to read the files and process them. This is a server settings error. And I think this might help you out.


As suggested by jamiebarrow, you can get to that directory directly using the following path in your Windows File Explorer,
