    Following a clean installation of Windows Server 2008, we installed Sitefinity 3.5 SP1. The installation went perfectly, however, once we launched the Sitefinity Project Manager, nothing came up. (404)
     
    Is there something specific with Server 2008 that needs to be configured to allow access to the sitefinity platform?

    Hello Michael ,

    Try running your browser in this way: Right click on the browser icon and then choose "Run as administrator". If you have had any problems during the installation you can do the same with the .exe file.

    I hope this helps.

    Ivan, I work with Michael. No, it didn't help. We've tried everything possible, but still get 404. I'm wondering if anybody at all was able to install sitefinity on server 2008, IIS 7. Please help.

    I'm getting the same problem locally on Vista running in IIS 6 compatibility mode. I double-checked all settings that are recommended in the installation pdf file...

    Hello Inna, Michael,

    There would not be a problem to run Sitefinity on server 2008. It seems this is an issue related to the server configuration. I am sending you some screenshots with configuration settings on my local server 2008 where I managed to install Sitefinity.

    If you cannot set up Sitefinity at your end, please open a support ticket and we could schedule a web conference or remote desktop to your server.

    All the best,
