1) in VWD create a new Web Site and point it directly to your IIS local web server call it TimeTracker e.g.
http://localhost/TimeTracker (since I have problem getting VWD web server to work using the Beta release) this step will create a web site on your local IIS, you can do this manually too.
2) Unzip the file downloaded into the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\TimeTracker and overwrite any files there.
3) Launch the site in IE e.g.
Check in web.config for connectionString, configure it according to your server name, password etc.
In Time Tracking System, it uses inbuild Membership classes for user creation, updation etc..
You have to register your DB with ASP.NET Membership classes by executing the command line utility in VS prompt
aspnet_regsql, it will open one window, where you have to configure DB.
If thsi helpful to you please mark it as answer, So it will help for other people
Hope it will help you, let me know.

thanks for your help. This is a good work around the problem.
Do you think it is an error which needs to be fixed by microsoft engineers.
Time Tracker install

Just for a test I created a brand new website and then went and defined Securty/Roles/Users etc. The software created a MDB file in my folder under App_Data. When I click the MDB file I do not see the contents but the error as "OBJECT REFERENCE NOT SET
TO AN INSTANCE OF AN OBJECT"
Please tell me steps I needs to take to be able to see the mdb file. thanks
I am following the following videw.

SQL Express and SQL Server both are running. The MDF file is, to OPEN with, SQL File Bootstraper as a default. Do you think this may be an issue of configuring SQL? What do you think I should try?
