I just installed the LitwareHR application and get the 404 Page not found error. I followed the readme and I can browse to the Contoso and Fabrikam pages so I've set up my host file properly. Any ideas what I've missed?

  1. Did you try to browse site from within the IIS console?
    1. What happens when you do that?
  2. Did you double-check the host file? It should have the "" entry.

Please tell me if that helped you.

Does the website point to the folder where the litware website is installed? C:\Program Files\Microsoft AST\LitwareHR\Src\Litware\Litware.WebSite for example.

Maybe the issue is around there...
Please tell me if that helped you.

Are you installing LitwareHR on Windows 2003 or Windows XP?
Did you download the appropiate installer?

Hi Ariel, thanks for helping.

I verified that is pointing to the correction location. It is indeed set to C:\Program Files\Microsoft AST\LitwareHR\Src\Litware\Litware.WebSite and I do see all files and directories as well inside the IIS console.

I am using Win2003 server and installed the non-XP install.

It seems that I am missing something so simple, at least I hope that is what it is. Any other ideas?

  1. In IIS's website:
    1. Do you have default.aspx in 's documents list?
    2. ASP.NET version is set to 2.0.50727?
  2. If you try browsing you get the same error?
  3. If you try browsing you get the same error?
  4. Did you try iisreset?

Does the ASP.NET v2.0.50727 web service extension is in the Allowed state?
You can check that on IIS's Web Service Extensions.
Additional information:;EN-US;315122

Hope that helps :)

YES! I knew it had to be something so simple. My setting were not set to Allowed so I switched it on and I can now navigate to the site.

Thanks so much for the help! I look forward to digging into the application.

Thanks again!
