Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

After struggling a bit, I’ve found my DesktopModules folder was being considered as a Virtual Directory on IIS and pointing to a wrong path. So after fixing, pointing out to the right path, everything was working again
