I've been searching all over for an answer for this one, and I've tried everything I can think of. Can anyone give me a reason why this installation is not working? I've created an IIS/Win2K3/SQL Server 2005 install of DNN4.9.0. Everything seems fine up until I try to run the subsite http://localhost/MyDNN
where I get the following error:
Description: The application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission please contact your system administrator or change the application's trust level in the configuration file.

NETWORK SERVICE has all rights to the DNN Virtual Directory, as does the domain admin. Tried logging in with the local server admin login... same result.
I tried altering the trust level in system.web to "Full". This had no effect. I also read somewhere that .NET 2.0 has a problem with subdirectories so I tried installing the Virtual Directory off the root of the hard drive, off the root of the "wwwroot" website and in c:\projects\MyDNN, all with the same result. This book seems to be ambivalent about whether the root web.config is used or the one under DNN virtual directory. As a matter of fact, I do not see any reference by the author of renaming the release.config or development.config files to web.config as mentioned in the DNN documentation. In any case I tried putting connection strings in both, to no avail.
If no one has a clue what is wrong (as evidenced by the lack of answers to others with similar problems), I would appreciate a clear tested script with a working DNN4.9.0 install using SQL2005 and IIS over Win2K3. I tried following this book and also the documentation that comes with DNN ... both don't seem to work.
Whatever help I can get here will be greatly appreciated. DNN Rocks ... if only I can get it to work for ME!
