    Hi,

    I am using Windows Xp and i am facing the following problems

    During the Installation of Sitefinity Community  version 3.7 (we are using SQL server 2005, yet to install Visual Studio) on my system manually, I am stuck at the stage where i need to acces the sitefintiy using local host using the following url : http://localhost/BB/Sitefinity/Login.aspx (BB being the sample folder).

    We are getting error message  on the webpage. Please suggest corrective measures for this issue.

     

    Server Error in '/BB' Application.

    Failed to access IIS metabase.

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Hello Nitesh Chaturvedi,

    Thank you for using our services.

    This seems to be an IIS configuration error. As the stack trace that you have posted says:
    The process account used to run ASP.NET must have read access to the IIS metabase (e.g. IIS://servername/W3SVC). For information on modifying metabase permissions, please see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=267904.

    Please follow the link provided and modify the IIS metabase so that the ASP.NET worker process has read access to the IIS metabase.
     
    Kind regards,
    Radoslav Georgiev
