I noticed that most of these posts are old, so I hopw someine is out there that can help me. I am trying to install Issue Tracker on my system, but I am using Visual Studio2005/Framework 2.0 and SQL Server 2005. As soon as the convert process starts, I
get a message that states that there was a problem converting and I may have to perform some maual manipulation, but then the conversion completes with a message that conversion was successful. When I perform a build of the website I get "Build Succeeded"
with 18warnings, however, when I try to "View in Browser" I get this:
Failed to access IIS metabase.
I have read the Microsoft explanation of this error, but I am a little nervous about doing anything to the metabase as described by the article. Can anyone else shed some light on what the pssoble issue may be?

Well hello there,
I'll try to give you some help with things that I have encountered along the way as a starting point. So we'll see how far we can get. Before I start though I want to ask a question of you. When you say you are using Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server
2005, are you using the Express editions of these products or are you using one of the purchased versions of VS 2005?
The reason I ask about this is that it will make a bit of difference in any potential error messages you get. The reason for this is that the Express editions of VS 2005 only support web site projects, not web application projects. The Issue Tracker Starter
Kit was built originally with VS2003 which only supported web application projects. So when pulling the starter kit into an express edition of VS2005 there will be some error messages but no harm done as it can't convert the file that makes it a web application
On my web site, I have a series of articles about the Issue Tracker Starter Kit. Just go to the
main page of my site and from there select the Issue Tracker tab and you should be able to find the documents. I also have a discussion form on my site where questions can be asked about the content of
my articles/documents and if you need to contact me directly there is a contact form on the site that registered users of the site have access to. Naturally none of the work I have done is meant to replace the offical support forums here on this site as my
forums are for questions directly related to the documentation that I have written on my own and nothing more.
Anyway, within the aritcles I have written I have covered some pointers about using Issue Tracker with .NET 2.0 and with SQL2005 which you might find helpful. I am not sure in what order you have done things, but the way that I approached pulling Issue
Tracker into VS 2005, both professional and express editions was to first install Issue Tracker as a normal install of the product allowing it to create all the entries within IIS that it needed. The normal install procedure creates a web site and sets up
permssions on the site and on the virtual directories. You might be missing this information if you just try to pull Issue Tracker directly into VS2005 if you are pulling the source files in from some other machine rather than having it installed on the machine
in which you are using VS2005 from.
I hope this information has been of help and make a posting here if you have further issues. I will try to help with what I can and of course I am interested to keep an eye out on matters such as this as I work on the last piece of documentation which is
a developer document.
