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”.
Finally, I tried to deploy a solution with Visual studio and the result was:
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!
