Solution:

1. Following providers must be added in Management service delegation rule: setAcl, createApp, contentPath, iisApp.

2. Identity Type should be “ProcessIdentity”

3. Path should be {userScope}

Solution :

1. WmSvc should have write access on applicationhost.config to mark folder as application.

2. Local Service should have Full Control on Website directory.

    Thank you so much. I have spent one day trying to solve this problem with no luck until I found your post.

    Sorry, but your last answer was too cryptic for me.

    What is WmSvc and where do I find applicationhost.config. What does "to mark folder as application" mean?

    What is the "Local Service"?
