Weird Error Running ASP MVC 3 Site in Debug Mode

Saw this error today:

It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.

Actually, the problem was I had edited the wrong web.config file :-)

In ASP.Net MVC, there's a web.config under the main root, and a web.config under the Views folder.

So, my tip of the day is, make sure you're editing the one you're supposed to be.
