Resolve Problems During Installation of VSeWSS 1.3 CTP

I had the following screen error when I tried to install Visual Studio extensions for Windows Sharepoint Services v1.3 CTP (March 2009)

Please wait while installer finishes determining your disk space requirements


The system was Windows Server 2008. I made preliminary configuration, according requirements, namely I created a local user account “vsewss”, with local administrator privileges as well as new application pool “VSeWSS” with Managed Pipeline Mode “Classic” and with service account “vsewss”.

After installation failure, I removed my application pool and created new one - “vsdev” with the same settings and started the setup again


The result was better


Obviously, the problem was in the name of my application pool. I left the default and finished the installation. After that, I changed the application pool for new created site “VSeWSS” with “spdev”.

The last thing, which was necessary here, was to add the user “vsewss” to Site Collection Administrators of the site, where I wanted to deploy my solution!
