Changes will not be applied: Access denied???

When in the Extension Manager (BE v1.4), if I try to Enable or Disable an extension, I get the following error in RED right above the list of extensions:

Changes will not be applied: Access to the path 'd:\hosting\mysite\blog\web.config' is denied.

If I refresh the screen, the status changes accordingly, and the error is still there.  Has anyone ever ran into this issue?

To enable/disable extension, you need to allow ASP.NET write access to web.config. Ext. manager changes last updated date on web.config for IIS to restart and extensions to reload. Changes you made will be saved, but extension will not be enabled/disabled untill IIS is restarted. You can restart IIS manually, by touching web.config over FTP for example - if you don't want web.config be writable.
