About    Todd Carter's WebLog

Since I work on ASP.NET and this is such a hot technology I thought I would try to write about my experiences. My job allows me the privilege of working with some of the largest corporate customers running ASP.NET, and because of my position I am exposed to some of the most challenging issues. About like solving a really hard puzzle I really only want to resolve these issues once and move onto the next. So the idea here is to share what I have learned and the techniques and tools leveraged to help those in the community and try to prevent such issues in the future.

    Deleting ASP.NET 2.0 Application Sub-Directories Shuts Down the AppDomain

    • 27 Comments
    This issue seems to be coming up recently since ASP.NET 2.0 shipped; probably because this behavior has changed from previous versions. In previous versions ASP.NET did not care if you deleted sub-directories of the web application and it appears some...
