Default Setup sample code failed - "default.html"

I am using Professional ASP.NET 1.1 in Win2k Pro, II 5 (local machine), VS.NET 2003, has SQL Server 2000 installed in a remote machine

After run "Setup.exe", the virtual directory/database all created, but the "Defaule.htm" page never changed as supporsed to do so ("Once the configuration routine has been run, this page will be replaced by a menu page").

This is the error message I get from "Setup.log"

"Setup.exe" make setup routine too compleix

After download setup file, I found "ReadMFirst.txt" and "SetupReadMe.htm", one "Default.htm" contains the same instruction as "SetupReadMe.htm", one "Start.htm" gives me feeling that it is another "Readme.txt" file.

What a mess!!

My suggestion:

1) Using step-by-step instructions instead of one "Setup.exe" file, if you use one "Setup.exe" file, you have to consider every single machine's configuration setting and this is impossible.
2) The author can safely assume any one purchase "Professional" serial ASP.NET book has the ability to follow the above step-by-step instructions without problem, but run a "Setup.exe" file make me really confused and seems can do nothing about it.

I am a bit worry about the books quality I purchased recently - it seems authors in rush, they'd rather give you a "Quick and Dirty" solution instead of carefully designed, clearly explained professional book which you can trust and teach yourself.

Does anyone else who purchased any Wrox computer book in the past 6 months has the same feeling as me?

I hope I was wrong as I DID TRUST WROX AUTHORS A LOT!!

Kind Regards,

Charles

Charles:
This is some good feedback about the value of a single setup.exe file versus a series of setup steps for the reader to follow, especially for advanced readers. We'll keep this in mind as we look at how best to provide the example files in future books.

Have the same problem - Default page dosen't load
although, setup appears to have run correctly and
my system is identical except 2K server.

I have read all 6 pages of this forum and am unable
to get the example's menu to display.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have run setup, and after that ran makeall.bat.
A quick at the install log dosen't give any hints
as to an error.

I too feel these instructions are too brief as I am
unsure what or where (which directories) to launch
from. 'ie visual studio tools command prompt' ??
thats not in my tool menu. So I used DOS cmd prompt.
