Imar,

Sorry to have wasted your time.
I am a very rookie here and did not know about ASPNET account. The book is not very user-friendly about the installation of asp.net. I am navigating in a very much unknown world here and don't know what to do.

I added the ASPNET user but those pages I am trying to access are still not working and giving me the same message about me not having the permission. When adding ASPNET user, I did not put a password (maybe I should). Does this mean that I have to log on as ASPNET user to be able to see those files?

There must be a complete installation installation (step-by-step ASP.NET installation for dummies out there that I can purchase or get from the web)...

Thanks again.
Guy

You don't have to provide a password; this is managed by Windows. All you need to do is grant access to the folder for the specified account.

Normally, this shouldn't be such a hassle to setup. I installed .NET on a couple of servers, never with this many problems. It seems like you have messed something up in the process.

If you look in IIS you'll see the samples Virtual Director. Can you describe its settings, and what folder it's pointing to? And what do you see under the Security tab? Is Anonymous Access enabled?
And when you set the settings for the samples, did you apply the setting to all of the subfolders?
And what does the readme for the quick starts say about installation? Does it provide any instructions?

If all else fails, the samples / quick starts are available online as well......

Thanks a lot Imar for your help.

I uninstalled everything - .NET Framework, V Studio, SQL, etc... and re-installed without a problem and everything works perfectly now.

Search me?!! I don't understand what went wrong, but who cares now, its working! :D

Again, thanks for your help.
Now I am on to learning ASP.NET! Yť!

All you have to do is:
Go to Copmuter Managment/Internet Information Services/Default Web Site. Right-click "Default Web Site" and choose New.../Virtual Directory. Give the "quickstart" alias to directory and set path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\SDK\v1.1\QuickStart (where C: the drive you installed your .NET or SDK).

After this you should be OK.

Hello,

I experienced the same problems. I followed all these steps and tried no joy. So I tried unistalling IIS, ASP.NET and re-installing.

I am now stuck where the Tutorials take me to the start pages but will not load anything because the uninstall of IIS removed the the ASPPLUS folder containing the tutorial files.

Basically I need to be able to get the installation to believe the tutorials have not been installed.

How can uninstall the tutorials or get the tutorials to restart the installation from the very beginning ?

Regards
   Clint

I had the same problem here on my machine, it was a simple fix, open up IIS, right click on your website which appears on the left side and click Properties, in the Directory Security tab, under Anonymous access and authentication control, click Edit.... The Authentication Methods window will pop up, at the bottom check Integrated Windows Authentication [u]ON</u>. hit Ok, Apply, OK, and you should be good. This worked for me, i figured id share it, hope it helps.
