I followed the installation instructions and when I got the part where you open the Project Manager in localhost, I kept getting a popup requesting username and password. I tried to follow your workaround instructions but they didn't work for me and were hard to follow since I don't have Vista.
Anyway, here's the fix that worked for me:
IIS uses Integrated Authentication and by default IE has the ability to use
your windows user account...but don't worry, so does Firefox but you'll have to
make a quick configuration change.
1) Open up Firefox and type in about:config as the url
2) In the Filter Type in ntlm
3) Double click "network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris" and type in
localhost and hit enter
Unfortunately, now I have this error:
Failed to access IIS metabase
so I am off to troubleshoot. Feel free to help me out if you have suggestions!
