after a lot of issues getting Umbraco installed I finally had a working installation, watched some of the startup videos and started playing.Using Umbraco 4.5.2 on an XP Pro platform with Runway installed, SQL Express 2008 R2 and VWD 2010 express installed.
I decided to try and change some of the Runway master and Runway text page templates to using copy and paste from a master page I have set up in a web site dveloped in VWD 2008 Express. Ended up in something of a muddle so decided to start all over again and took the following steps:
Everything seemed to work and I ended up with two folders in c:\inetpub\wwwroot --- James Gallery(My site) and aspnet_client.
I launched Umbraco and logged in as administrator and got the Umbraco Interface. First thing I did was to was to click on Runway Home page and click preview -- I was curious to see the Runway Top Navigation I had included as this didn't appear as I expected in my original attempt.
I got a page showing:

web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the

What have I done wrong THIS time ------- Help please!
Tried to edit the start of the post to provide this background but the forum errored when I submirted the edited post:
I am a novice web developer with a little experience developing simple
web sites in asp.net 3.5 using VWD 208 Express. Some basic experience
with SQL as one of the sites used a database to provide details of
members of an organisation, events, news stories etc together with some
'home made' content management of some text areas. I have decided I want
to develop in a CMS type environment ---- so here I am!!
Any ideas anyone? I can't get beyond this satge and as I have already deleted the SQL database and reinstalled Umbraco I'm at a loss.
I've tried unpublishing the gallery pages and the contact page to no avail.
Never got round this issue. Finally flattened the notebook, reinstalled OS, upgraded to Windows 7 and reinstalled everything from scratch.
Seems to work now!
