Which version of DNN are you trying to install? Did you use the INSTALL package?

How far into the install process before it failed?

version 05.01.02
As far as the install package I downloaded DotNetNuke_Community_05.01.02_Install.zip per the books instructions. And unzipped it into C:\inetpub\wwwroot\dotnetnuke. Created a web site called dnnbook and added a dns entry in my host file.

Then browsed to http://dnnbook/ which did a redirect to http://dnnbook/Install/InstallWizard.aspx and that is where the error lies.

Did I miss any steps?

FYI I won your book at the Denver Visual Studio UG where you spoke.

I can't say that I have seen the issue you are running into, but now that I think about it, I do believe I know what is going on.

If you right click on the ZIP file before extraction, choose properties, see if there's a message at the bottom about "BLOCKED" or something similar. I've seen windows lately start to block certain files, and it sounds like you don't have the DLLs all in the bin folder correctly.

Once you've unblocked it you can extract again directly over the files you've setup.

I did find the block statement on the properties of the zip file. But after unblocking I tried to reinstall again and got the same error. So I have given up on the install.

Hmmmm sorry you're having troubles, I can honestly say I'm not sure what the problem could be.

Can you double check the permissions you configured on the File System, did you use the Network Service account? Can you check to make sure the application pool in IIS is using that account as well?

Ok here is where I'm at. I installed it on to 2003 server and it finished the installation wizard. But, when I tried to login I it came up with a severe fault occured message. I wasn't sure where to look for any further information so I just stopped.

Another thing I noticed was it was extremely slow when clicking on any buttons. I assumed it was just the installation wizard processing. But it continued to be slow once I got to the portal page. Might be because of the error.

Where would I find more about the error?

I will try to istall it on my Vista machine and double check the security settings on the machine.

The install wizard apges are going to be a bit slow to load, that is just the way that they end up working.

What is the error that you get on the site after the installation completed?
