Default Unspecified Error

Hi Imar,

When I followed your book's instruction to configure asp.net by running the command 'aspnet_regiis -i', I got an unspecified error 0x80004005. What's causing it? Thanks for your help.

Hi there,

0x80004005 errors are almost always security related. Did you run the command from an Administrative command prompt (using Run As / Ctrl+Shift+Enter on the item in the start menu?)

Hi Imar,

No, I didn't, but I'll try. What do I do though when the User Account Control dialog pops up (I'm running Window 7)? Should I just click 'Yes'? Thanks for the help.

Yep. Windows wants to know you're really an admin, and not a virus.... ;-)

Cheers,

Imar

Hi Imar,

When I run inetmgr in the Try It Out Exercise and get to Default Web Site, I don't see the Properties option when I do a right-click on it. I'm running Windows 7 Home Edition. Please help. Thanks.

Hi there,

Which Home edition of Windows 7 do you use? You need at least the Home Premium edition.

Also, which which step / page number are you working on?

Cheers,

Imar

Hi Imar,

I've the Home Premium Edition. The Try It Out exercise is 'Configuring a Site with Windows XP or Server 2003' on page 647. And I was on Step 3 of page 648.

Ah, I see. The instructions in the book are targeting an older version of IIS, while Windows 7 uses IIS 7.x.

For this to work, right-click the site, choose Manage Web Site | Advanced Settings. There you can set up the root folder.

Since the instructions are quite different, you may want to visit www.iis.net and learn a bit more about setting up IIS 7. (Or get a copy of the 4.0 version of my book as it targets Windows 7 / Server 2008 ;-) )

Cheers,

Imar
