    Fresh installation, packages wont install

    I've done a fresh manual install of 4.7.1 on windows 7 and followed all the procedures...

    • Set permissions on folders (network user)
    • Created application pool
    • Configured IIS
    Everything installed fine and i can login to umbraco but each time i try to install a package I'm getting errors, mainly that certain folders (app_data) are not there when they are.
    Strange?! anyone any ideas?

    Hi Stephen

    Try setting permissions on the iusr as well. Does that help?

    have done a little more digging and found the problem and it lies firmly with the virtual directory, moved it to a website  withing IIS and everything is now wokring.  Can i mark this as the solution?

    Thanks everyone for thier input.

    Cheers,

    Hello,

    I'm facing the same exact problem, using Webmatrix for installing and managing Umbraco 4.7.1 in Windows 7.

    I use SQLCE for storage.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Thanks in advance

    Is your website a virtual directory?

    I use IIS Express for running the site via Webmatrix.

    I know that there is a distinction between Virtual Directories and Applications in IIS but I'm not sure if the same applies to IIS Express as well...

    By the way, as some other fellows reported earlirer, if the package is going to be installed manually, everything completes with no errors...
