I am doing my first installation of the WBH 4.5 deployment walktrough. The most of it is running now, but i am not able to create an sharepoint website for my alpineskihouse teamsite. I get the response "Client
found response content type of 'text/html', but expected 'text/xml'. The request failed with the error message: -- The data is invalid. --. " when i submit the teamsite information.
Does anyone has any idea where i can start to solve this error?

This problem occurs because the installer encounters a problem when it creates the Internet Information Services (IIS) virtual directory that is named MPSSharePointAdminWS.
To work around this problem, perform the following operations:
1. On the local drive, use IIS Manager to note the path that the MPSSharePointAdminWS virtual directory refers to. Then, determine which application pool the MPSSharePointAdminWS virtual directory uses.
2. Delete the MPSSharePointAdminWS virtual directory, and then create a new virtual directory in IIS Manager. Note Use the same name when you create the new virtual directory.
3. Point the new MPSSharePointAdminWS virtual directory to the same path and to the same application pool that the previous virtual directory used.
4. Make sure that Read and Execute are enabled when you create the new virtual directory.

Thank you both for the replies. Unfortunatly both solutions didn't do the trick.
Since i'm an beginner on WBH/HMC i decided to cry it out and start over again with an different walkthrough.

I've build an new environment (consolidated) and ran again in the same problem. There was only one difference, the solution from DotNetPark Worked [:D]
Thank you very, very much!
