I know that ppl have already asked questions regarding encrypting web.config.
im also trying to encrypt my test config file, but im getting this error.
aspnet_regiis -pef "connectionStrings" "C:\encryptedWeb.config"
Encrypting configuration section…
The configuration for physical path 'C:\EncryptedWeb.config' cannot be opened.
I just want to know, what could be reasons that it failed.
I got the answer, it was the readonly property of the web.config which was the problem.
After I removed the readonly It worked like a charm.
