    I installed the trial version on Vista Ultimate and it failed. Not only did it fail, but it did not install the admin folder anywhere, which makes it impossible to test out even using the visual studio as the host. Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    Vista is a worm hole of issues with development. I got it going and here is roughly what I did:

    • Install sitefinity using "Run as administrator" - you MUST do this otherwise installation will not work.
    • Once installed go to iis and on the Sitefinity 3, TIU and Jobsite virtual directories change the application pool from "DefaultAppPool" (which is the new Vista app pool" to "ClassicAppPool" for each of them.
    • You may need to change the authentification type for the TIU as I think from memory it wasn't correct.
    • Go to the Program files\telerik\Sitefinity 3.0\websites directory right click and select properties and your user access to read and write on all the files inside that directory.
    • Then when you start the project manager it will ask you for your creditials - use the ones you use to log into Vista.
    • Then you should be right.
    However for each project you create you will need to change the app pool from Default to classic as the new Vista default app tool does run sitefinity or other apps correctly for some reason.

    Like I said... a worm hole. If anyone knows how to do this easier then I would like to know but that is how I did it.

    The up side... I do dev on a laptop which now has Vista installed and it runs heaps faster and smoother with Vista compared to XP.

    Cheers,

    Seth

    Here's the issues I still have.
    1)Run as administrator does nothing if UAC is disabled
    2)Unable to create virtual directories despite adding IIS6 support
    3)Authentication type? asp.net does not exist anymore, what user do I grant full access?
    4)The admin folder is missing after failing to install.

    My home computer has Sitefinity installed correctly, but my laptop refuses. I need some suggestions at this point.

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your interest in our CMS and contacting us. Unfortunately, we cannot determine the reason why you could not install/uninstall Sitefinity successfully.

    We recommend you use the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility that is offered by Microsoft to uninstall Sitefinity.

    We are sorry that you could not evaluate our CMS, most probably there is some problem with administrative permissions or IIS settings.

    Kind regards,
    Rebecca

    Ok, I am trying to install Sitefinity on Vista Home Premium addition and can't get rid of "Unauthorised error" despite following all the steps prescribed in this forum.

    I tried setting up my Interent Information Service to use Windows authentication but this option is not even listed. Here is a list of options under Internet Information Services->World Wide Web Services->Security:
    1. Basic Authentication
    2. IP Security
    3. Request Filtering
    4. URL Authorization

    Not only that, after uninstalling and reinstalling Sitefinity v3.0, IIS manager does not even show Sitefinity 3.0 under Default Web site.

    I believe a step-by-step installation document on Vista would be a great help.

    Here is the error:

     

    Server Error in Application "Default Web Site/telerik/Sitefinity3.0"


    HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized

    Description: You are not authorized to view this page due to invalid authentication headers.

    Error Code: 0x80070005

    Notification: AuthenticateRequest

    Module: IIS Web Core

    Requested URL: http://localhost:80/telerik/Sitefinity3.0

    Physical Path: C:\Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity3.0\ProjectManager

    Logon User: Not yet determined

    Logon Method: Not yet determined

    Handler: StaticFile

    Most likely causes:

    • No authentication protocol (including anonymous) is selected in IIS.
    • Only integrated authentication is enabled, and a client browser was used that does not support integrated authentication.
    • Integrated authentication is enabled and the request was sent through a proxy that changed the authentication headers before they reach the Web server.
    • The Web server is not configured for anonymous access and a required authorization header was not received.
    • The "configuration/system.webServer/authorization" configuration section may be explicitly denying the user access.

    What you can try:

    • Verify the authentication setting for the resource and then try requesting the resource using that authentication method.
    • Verify that the client browser supports Integrated authentication.
    • Verify that the request is not going through a proxy when Integrated authentication is used.
    • Verify that the user is not explicitly denied access in the "configuration/system.webServer/authorization" configuration section.
    • Create a tracing rule to track failed requests for this HTTP status code. For more information about creating a tracing rule for failed requests, click here.

    More Information... This error occurs when the WWW-Authenticate header sent to the Web server is not supported by the server configuration. Check the authentication method for the resource, and verify which authentication method the client used. The error occurs when the authentication methods are different. To determine which type of authentication the client is using, check the authentication settings for the client.

    Hi Nitin,

    Please make sure that  World Wide Web Services > Security > Windows Authentication  is checked.

    Please let us know how it goes.

    I have recently tried to install Sitefinity 3.1 recent sp version on my Vista Pro laptop and followed all of the install settings in the Install guide and in this post...

    One item of note, I do not apprear to have worldwide web - security - windows authentication option   is there something I am missing with my IIS install?

    I have Basic, etc.. just as mentioned in this thread...
    1. Basic Authentication
    2. IP Security
    3. Request Filtering
    4. URL Authorization

    The error I am working with when accessing localhost/telerik/tiusite etc.. is:

    Cannot open user default database. Login failed.
    Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'.
      

    I have double checked that Network Service has full control on all of the sitefinity folders....    tried running IE7 as administrator etc...  not sure what am I missing?  Thanks in advance...

    Hi Brook,

    Windows Vista Home Basic and Windows Vista Home Premium do not contain the Windows Authentication module for IIS. You can refer to this article for more information:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937523

    However, your Vista Pro should have this option. This is why we suggest you configure IIS7 to run as IIS6 as described in the Sitefinity User Manual, section Installing Sitefinity under Windows® Vista.

    Please pay special attention to step 6, at which you should expand World Wide Web Services, and then expand Security and select Windows Authentication.
    I am attaching the instructions for your convenience.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Sincerely yours,
    Rebecca

    I have recently installed Vista on pc. Initially I tried to install it with my own. But I was completely messed up. Every time my computer was getting hanged at the middle of the process. When I almost gave up hope my brother advised me to seek help from http://www.supportonclick.com. I followed his advice with a lot of apprehension. But I was completely amazed to see how the staffs out there helped me to install Vista almost within a minute. Later they helped my friend also to upgrade Vista in his laptop. Since then whenever I face any problem I just hang on to them and they also lend their helping hands towards me. I think you should get in touch with them immediately so that they can help you to solve your problem.

    Hi N,

    As I see it it is a year old thread. However we have released several versions after that. You can gather more information after logging to MyClient.net.

    As for the Vista installation, here is a good example of this : SitefinityWatch.com
