I am very interested in SiteFinity, but every attempt to install it has failed and I am ready to throw in the towel.
It has been a few months and when I saw it on MS Web Platform Installer, decided to try it again. It dies w/the message below. I am running Windows 7. I am pointing it to my local machine's .\SQLEXPRESS, which is SQL Server 2008. When I try to add this user ('IIS APPPOOL\SitefinityCommunityEdition') to the SQL Server logins, I get an error, "no such user". When I then try to add a SitefinityCommunityEdition user to my local machine, I see that user names are limited to 20 characters, so it truncates to SitefinityCommunityE. I am stuck, what am I doing wrong?
There was an error trying to connect to the Database Server:
Cannot open database "SiteFinityTest" requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user 'IIS APPPOOL\SitefinityCommunityEdition'.
