Can't create account rss reporter xsql

This question comes up every so often: I am creating a new user in the RSS Reporter interface, I entered all the required information, but when I click on the "Add and Continue" button I get the error: "Failed to save the user information due to insufficient permissions. Write access to the path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\RssReporter\App_Data is denied".

RSS Reporter stores the user and profile information in the App_Data subfolder located under the main installation folder. You should assign write NTFS permission to IIS worker process account on this subfolder. If RSS Reporter has been installed on Windows XP or Windows 2000, assign write permission to machinename\ASPNET account, (where machine name is the computer on which RSS Reporter is installed); if you are using Windows Server 2003, assign write permission to the NETWORK SERVICE account.

RSS Reporter generates standard rss feeds from SQL Server and can be used to monitor SQL Jobs from multiple servers as well as to generate rss feeds containign the results of ad-hoc queries. RSS Reporter is free for one SQL Server instance. You can download your copy from:
