I would really much like to try out and examine this sample app. I've tried installing it on my desktop computer which is running Vista, SQL Server 2005 Dev, .NET 1.1/2.0/3.0/3.5B2, IIS7, but no luck. It says:
Error 1001: The installation failed, and the rollback has been performed. --> A failure has occured during IIS application creation. The exception encountered was: Cannot read configuration file
What could be the cause of this error? Btw, I have yet to try the manual install of the app. I just wnated to report this error.

The only unknown to me in your config is presence of Beta of .NET 3.5. Not sure if this is cause of error or not though.
Assume you have ensured IIS 7 is installed/configured as a Windows Component on Vista; and .NET 3.0 is enabled as a Windows component including Windows Communication Foundation "HTTP Activation." And you are logged in as a local admin on the machine for install.
Code-only install followed by steps in Readme for manual install might be next steps after the above.

You're absolutely right... I was missing some of the components, which I figured out during the manual installation. So .NET 3.5 Beta isn't to blame. However, I still think the installer should be better at analyzing these requirements and telling people what to do if an installer requirement isn't fulfilled. For example that sql server managed login should be enabled and not just the sql server windows authentication. I hope you'll integrate more help (better error messages and such) in the next version of the installer. But it's not all bad... I actually think it was a good experience to install the sample manually as it helped me a little in understanding how the sample was put together.
So thanks for a great application sample!

Thanks, this is good feedback, to be rolled into 1.1 along with some other fixes/enhancements!
