Kind of an ugly error. I just got the same thing and searched the "FrontPageRPCException" before opening a new forum post. I hope this gets fixed because it is an unnecessary wart on a very clean looking product.
This takes several steps to work around. This is what I did to workaround on Windows 7, 32bit, IIS 7.5, SQL 2008, VS2010, Sitefinity v4, beta2. Not sure if this is all kosher. Any feedback is appreciated:
1. Create the folder (assuming you want it in wwwroot) c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mynewsite
2. Change permissions so that "IIS_IUSRS" has "Full control" to the folder via Windows Explorer.
3. Via IIS Manager, go to Sites-->Default Web Site, rt-click "Add Application", type an alias name, e.g., "mynewsite", and then in the "Physical Path" field, enter your folder path "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mynewsite".
4. NOW you can go into Sitefinity, click "Create New Project", and in the popup window, for "Location", select "HTTP", click the "Browse" button, and find your new "mynewsite" within your IIS instance. Click thru the dialogues and it should build ok.
