    I just installed SiteInfinity on Windowserver2003

    I can get to the default page but when I click Create project I get the following error...

    what do I need to do?

    Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity3.6\ProjectManager\Templates\Community' is denied.

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity3.6\ProjectManager\Templates\Community' is denied.

    ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

    To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.

    Hi Damir j,

    As you can see from the error, there is a suggestion provided as to what may have caused the problem. Consider the following text:

    "ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

    To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access."

    Did you try this out (specifically the second paragraph)? This text suggests that ASP.Net has no permissions to write in the folder
    C:\Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity3.6\ProjectManager\Templates\Community
    ... and you need to provide such permissions.

    Let us know if you experience any other issues while working with Sitefinity.

    Kind regards,
