    Hi, I followed the directions here:  http://www.sitefinitywatch.com/blog/09-02-24/Installing_Sitefinity_using_Blank_Project.aspx

    When I click the SqlExpress option and click "continue" I get this error:

    Failed to map the path '/'.   
    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.   
     
    Exception Details: System.InvalidOperationException: Failed to map the path '/'. 

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

    Hello Kavi,

    When loading Visual Studio you can right-click the icon and click "Run as Administrator" to fix this issue. If the problem persists you could try running the website under the IIS server not the Cassini web server that is build it Visual studio.

    I hope this helps.
