I am getting this error on deploy of the 'evService' seems my account doesn't have the rights or something not sure what is causing this on Windows 7 with IIS 7


  Virtual directory 'EvService' created/updated with path 'E:\source\EvService\'.
  Modifying NTFS permissions on virtual directory folders...
  cacls "..\EvService\" /E /G UserName:R
  The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.


The UserName is my logged in user id.

Please try removing the trailing backslash from your VDirList Physdir value.

Hi Tom,

Worked perfect!!

Thank You very much for the Deployment Framework, being very new to BizTalk I dreaded having to create deployment scripts. Your framework is an absolute life saver!!
