No write perms to /Temporary ASP.NET Files/ folder during build?

One of the projects in my sln is an old-style "ASP.NET Web Site" (rather than a "Web Project". During the build, I receive the following error...

[exec] ASPNETCOMPILER : error ASPRUNTIME: The current identity (APPVYR-WIN20122\appveyor) does not have write access to 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files'.

Are "ASP.NET Web Sites" supported on AppVeyor? If so, how do I resolve this issue? If not, is my only recourse to switch this out to a "ASP.NET Web Project"?

You can see this error here in its full context.

Thanks in advance for your assistance; I'm really enjoying the thought you've put into this system!

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for reporting the issue! We'll change permissions on that folder with the next build worker image update (1-2 days). Though ASP.NET Web App Project is more natural these days :)

    Thanks for the speedy reply. FWIW, I totally agree that "ASP.NET Web Site" is a much less-common scenario; this particular project in the sln was created during that 3-6 month period where all the focus was on moving to Web Sites instead of Web Projects and so it was created using that model instead.

    Since the project in question is actually just a small-scale sample/example in the larger solution, I may actually just proceed to migrate it from a Web Site to a more common Web Project anyway, just b/c that is now the much more common expectation of users, etc. that might be reviewing the samples anyway.

    Thanks again for the rapid assist and keep up the great work -- really enjoy the thought you guys have put into this system!

    Build worker update has been deployed. Give your build another try - should be working now.
