Update Failed

I'm trying to use BE 3.1 and although I can create new posts and get to the settings page, when I try to edit any posts or settings I get the Update Failed message.

My host provider assures me there's not a permissions issue, and when I go to the Tools option under settings and check the permissions everything checks out OK. Read/Write is allowed on all folders for the application.

I've tried it as a sub-domain and also a virtual directory. It doesn't seem to be a web.config inheritance issue.

The site is using ASP.NET 4.0 / 4.5 Integrated Pipeline.

I ran Fiddler2 to try and see what the problem is and it's just giving a generic 500 error on http://.../blog/api/settings URL.

The host provider says they only found 1 non SUCCESS result, which is PATH NOT FOUND for C:...\wwwroot\blog\api\settings\web.config.

Does anyone have any ideas on what else I can try? I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!
