    I just finished installing Sitefinity and everything seems to be working fine.  I can edit the two sample sites with no problems.  I run into an issue when I try to create a new project using the "Project Manager" tool.  The error is:

    The account, you have authenticated with, has no permissions to create virtual directories. Please make sure that windows authentication is enabled.

    I am logged in as an admin and windows authentication does appear to be turned on.

    I am on a machine running Vista with IIS7 installed.

    Thanks,
    Todd

    Hi Todd,

    Give me a second to remind myself what it was I did.  Oh yeah, the issue was me not following the directions explicitly.  Let me find them quick.

    Ok, look at the User Manual under the "Error Creating Projects" section (appropriate title).  It should be page 15.  It shows the error and gives detailed instructions on the fix.  It was as simple as needed to "Run As Administrator".

    I know have my Sitefinity up and running smoothly.

    Thanks,
    Todd
