I've been playing around with this Sitefinity Project for the last 2 days, and have a couple of issues need to be addressed before i can continue.
I have Window Vista Home Premium Version, and install Sitefinity 3.2 Community Version. by default, it doesn't have WindowsAuthentication feature, but i worked around to have it installed.
My Authenticaion set up in IIS 7.0 like this,
1) Default Web Site: all authentication is Disable.
2) Default Web Site -> telerik: all authentication is Disable
3) Default Web Site -> telerik -> Sitefinity 3.2 Community: AnonymousAuthentication IS ENABLE, asp.net Impersonation and windowsAuthentication are Enable as well.
I have no problem with .template, or css not right, or DirectoryListingModule, i followed the suggestion and have it all done.
If you look at my setting, the third item doesn't look right, since in forum, they suggest to disable Anonymous Authentication, but if i follow, the whole sites doesn't come up, it stops from the very beginning with this error message:
Server Error in Application "Default Web Site/telerik/Sitefinity3.2.Community"
HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized
Description: You are not authorized to view this page due to invalid authentication headers.

I have to Enable this Authentication, and it seemed to work well. When i run the sample website, it also need to have the same setup for Authentications.
The issue i've got when create New Project, for the very first time, i swear that one of my setting that made it work smoothly, it asked for which database server i want to create on, and i chose SQL 2005, which i had installed before, it has been sucessfully create the database. But when i re-install sitefinity, i couldn't make it to work again. I forgot the setting i had before.
Currently, when create new project, if i leave AnonymousAuthentication as IUSR, it doesn't allow me to create virtual application, the error is "The account, you have authenticated with, has no permissions to create virtual directories. Please make sure that windows authentication is enabled." which is fine. So i change anonymousAthentication to Application Pool Identity, the process seemed like to run smoothly, it created new folder and try to copy files to this folder, (i have been assigned permissions to for Network Service account), but it failed and delete this folder afterward, the error is: "Unable to create the virtual directory: Unknown name. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020006 (DISP_E_UNKNOWNNAME))"
Please assist me with Vista setting, these errors have prevent me from goin any further.
thank you very much for paying attention to my problem.
