For the first time today I started using SiteFinity 5.1.327 (Community Edition) on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine; so far I cannot even get the default web-site up and running. In the Project Manager window I select "Create a New Project" and choose an IIS-based web-site on my local machine that connects to a remote SQL Server Database. If I then attempt to administer the site, it crashes out after about 20 minutes with a time-out error, although the SiteFinity database appears on the remote server (just tables, no views or stored procedures). If I then go to http://localhost/mysite/Sitefinity/Startup I see the following message:
The system is restarting...
and the browser (Firefox) gets stuck in an infinite loop.
Please wait a few seconds. You will be redirected automatically.
What am I doing wrong? I installed it back in August with the default settings and everything looked OK. Is it really this difficult to use?
