    When I try to create a new project using the project manager, I get this error:

    Unable to create the virtual directory: Unknown name. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020006 (DISP_E_UNKNOWNNAME))

    It looks like Sitefinity can't create the new web application automatically (for the sample site I had to manually create the web app in order for it to work).

    Any idea?

    Hello Richard,

    Take a look at the following troubleshooting article Unable to create the virtual directory. Unknown name. Probably you need to grant ASPNET account over Sitefinity website folder.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
