I have just installed a blogengine.net v 1.4.5 and i am receiving this error message

Widget Administration not found.

This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the site administrator has locked access to this section using <location allowoverride="false"> from an inherited configuration file. (D:\hshome\emadbutt\blog\admin\web.config line 5)X</location>

Here is the web.config file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <pages enableSessionState="true" />
    <authorization>
      <deny users="?" />
    </authorization>
  </system.web>
</configuration>


Also, any administrative task give me the same error.


Anyone, have any idea what i need to do?

It sounds like your blog is hosted on a server with really tight security.  I just saw a customized version of BE called ModPack that's supposed to run on servers with tighter security.  ModPack is hosted here and more information on it here.
