I am receiving below error, it happen when trying to call Database property to connect to database (below).
I tried searching this on the internet but didn’t find much and suggested solution on the internet has already been used.
Also I’ve raised this issue on couple of relevant forums

I am using Enterprise Library 5.0
Visual Studio 2010 and .Net Framework 4.0
IIS version 7.5

but there were no response over there. As its very high priority and I am still facing same issue.
Also My code work perfect when running in in build server of Visual Studio 2010 but when I published in IIS and run it through IIS, I face this issue.
It’s very strange as its working fine through Visual Studio but not when published in IIS and I don’t see any issue in the code as gone through different resolutions mentioned.
