There is a duplicate 'system.web.extensions/scripting/scriptResourceHandler' section definedRoot of the error
I got the error when I was deploying a web application precompiled in asp.net 2.0 onto the production server with asp.net 4.0. The simple search reveals that it is known issues with VS 2010 and asp.net 2.0. But my site is asp.net 2.0 enabled. What's the root of the error then?
My conclusion (and please correct me if necessary) I have configured asp.net web extension namespaces in my web.config file. You don't see this in asp.net 3.5 and 4.0 enabled sites since servers with asp,net 3.5/4.0 by default server asp.net ajax services. But asp.net 2.0 has to be ajax enabled by installing asp.net ajax extension 1.0 which you can download from here. Sensed duplicate entry of system.web.extension section group? Yes, don't include the following section group in the config section if your site runs on asp.net 2.0 but published on asp.net 3.5/4.0.
Comment out the config section (or remove it if you like), and you are done. Good luck!
