ProcessModelSection.Enable Property


Gets or sets a value indicating whether the process model is enabled.

Namespace:   System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("enable", DefaultValue = true)]
public bool Enable { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the process model is enabled; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

The Enable property specifies whether ASP.NET is hosted in an external worker process. If Enable is true, ASP.NET is hosted in an external worker process; otherwise, it runs directly in Inetinfo.exe.


Running ASP.NET in Inetinfo.exe is not recommended, because this involves running the application in the Local System security context. When ASP.NET runs in Internet Information Services (IIS) 6 native mode, this setting is ignored, so there is usually no reason to set it to false.

The following code example shows how to access the Enable property.

// Get the current Enable property value.

bool enable = processModelSection.Enable;

// Set the Enable property to false.
processModelSection.Enable = false;
