SiteCore installation procedures and troubleshooting

18 Apr

Install IIS 6.0 or later (Start > Programs and Features >Turn windows features on or off)

To solve this, in the “web server name” page, setup advanced option, change the .net version from 2.0 to 4.0

setup_advanced setup_advanced_1

Now the setup runs smoothly. And you will find a new folder named “MySite” is created beneath the inetpub\www\

Launch Sitecore:
