Default System.IO.FileNotFoundException

Hi. So I installed this project in

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Projects\ASPNETProjects\Wrox\ThePhileVB\Books\defa ult.aspx

After fighting the config files, it kinda works. I have discovered three issues at this point:
  • In IE, the page http://localhost/ThePhileVB/Default.aspx opens in a snap. No problem here. However, if I try to use Mozilla instead, it says "waiting for localhost"... and waiting, and waiting... Sometimes, after maybe five-six minutes, Mozilla gives up and says "done" but shows a perfectly blank screen. Sometimes it just hangs in there, "waiting for localhost"...
  • So back in IE. On the first use of the program, if I say Login instead of Register (my bad) it throws an error (I forgot to write it down). However, after I registered, it seems to work.
  • In any case, if I click on the right on any of those links (books/DVD) I get the following message:
  • The error occurred in:

    Error Message:
    Exception of type System.Web.HttpException was thrown.

    Error Stack:
    System.Web.HttpException: Exception of type System.Web.HttpException was thrown. ---> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Projects\ASPNETProjects\Wrox\ThePhileVB\DVD\defaul t.aspx

    I checked - there is no DVD folder on my system (or Books, for that matter).

    Is this a problem with my download ? I did the 'installation' as instructed in 'readme'...

I have not read the book yet, but I tried to make it run because they advice to play with the project a bit before starting.

Thank you.

I'm not sure who told you to play with it first, but that's hard to do with a medium or large size project.

Mine works fine with Firefox, but I didn't try Mozilla.

There are no home pages provided for Books and DVDs. You have to make these yourself.
