    Hi Everyone. I've just getting started with a trial of SiteFinity on a Windows 2003 development server. After a few hours I got my first test site up and running, but I've run into a few errors.

    1) Any images in any of the Image Libraries display broken (as a red X).
    2) I keep getting an error and cannot get past the SQL configuration screen when trying to set up the "TIU University sample site" or any additional project.

    I scoured the Knowledge Base and came across something close for the broken images (http://www.sitefinity.com/support/kb/errors-in-sitefinity-projects.aspx), followed the instructions to add the .sflb and .tmb ISAPI extensions, but even after an IIS reset, it didn't fix it. I couldn't find anything on error # 2. I've attached some screenshots of the problems I'm running into.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Hello Adam,


    "An error occurred when establishing a connection to the server" - this error is thrown because your SQL server is not accessible - remote connections are not allowed, TCP protocol is not enabled or the SQL service is down. You may find this link useful An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.

    The images are not visible, because you have empty space in the name of the virtual directory. Please recreate the virtual directory.

    "Importing data failed" - this error is thrown because the database table is not empty and it has some data from the previous project or one of your previous attempts to get Sitefinity up and running.

    Kind regards,
