Installation Error

It's probably something stupid, but I have done two clean installs and keep getting to this point.  I can successfully connect to the database using the control panel ODBC applet.  So close...

OK, so 5 minutes after posting I figured it out.  For some reason I couldn't get the video to play so I was following the hard copy installation instructions.  I didn't see it in the instructions, but I found the .sql file in the setup folder and ran it to create all the tables.  That seems to have gotten me past that issue...

This can all be avoided if you start over and follow the installation instruction (by using the install Wizard).

There is an install video here:

And the written instructions:

I have followed the directions in the video and written and I still have this issue.  I'm not sure what else I could be doing wrong.  I never get to the setup wizard page, just this error page.

I too followed the directions and it didn't work properly.  I'm not gonna gripe though because it seems to be a very cool app.  I appreciate someone who is willing to share their work with the community!

I think (keyword think) if you manually browse to  /setup/setup.aspx the setup wizard will run.  If that doesn't work try browsing to /setup/default.aspx.  I deleted this folder after installation (as per directions) and can't remember exactly which one it is.

I hope this is helpful.  If not, at least I tried :-)
