    Hello, I am trying to setup Sitefinity v3.7 Community Edition. I have downloaded the .exe and when I try running the setup on my Win7 Pro x64 system all I get is an error.

    I have iis7 installed with Win7 Professional x64 version, 4 GB of RAM. I have installed sitefinity on my other machine which is running XP32bit and had no errors. Ive tried installing as admin & still no results. After it gets to 8/10ths complete the installation aborts with an error "Error creating virtual directory telerik/Sitefinity3.7.Community. Exception details: Unknown error (0x80005000)". I get that dialog box twice, and at the end another one "Sitefinity 3.7 Community Installer Information - Error 1001".

    I have tired rebooting but nothing is working.

    Thank you,
    Joshua H
