IIS Windows Auth not working for me

When copying the files over from the new build, don’t include Dashboard.ps1 and Web.Config in the overwrite.

That exactly what I did and after restarting IIS I’m getting application errors pertaining to the UD.server.exe failing to start.

IIS AspNetCore Module Error:

Application 'MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST/DEFAULT WEB SITE' with physical root 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\' failed to start process with commandline 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\net472\universaldashboard.server.exe ', ErrorCode = '0x80004005 : e0434352.

Make sure to unblock the files in the web directory:

Get-ChildItem -Recurse | Unblock-File 

Since the ZIP was downloaded from the internet, the files may be blocked.

After doing that and restarting IIS I got two new errors.

Any Idea? Did the zip file just not download correctly by chance?

There could be something wrong with the dashboard script.

Navigate to the installation directory in a cmd prompt and execute the UniversalDashboard.Server by hand. It might provide a better error message.

Nothing new, the cmd prompt pops up and quickly disappears (ran as Administrator). Event logs show the same errors as before.

So I was able to get Logging enabled but I’m getting the same FileLoadException mentioned in this thread. But it did create a log file but I’m not finding anything regarding the AuthorizationPolicies within the file. Is there something specific I should look for? I’m going to test out the -Design flag right now and see if I can get anything from there.

Update: Interestingly when I add the -Design flag into the Start command I’m getting the same errors generated in the event logs when I try to update to the Build.
