Problems starting the deployment center

I have just installed EPiServer CMS R2 SP1 form world.episerver.com and I am having problems starting the Deployment Center. I just get an error when trying to start the Deployment Center.

This is the output from the error log:

EPiServerInstall Information: 0 : EPiServerInstall.exe started with arguments "", EPiServerInstall Error: 0 : System.Xml.XmlException: Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1. at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Throw(Exception e) at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Throw(String res, String arg) at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.ParseRootLevelWhitespace() at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.ParseDocumentContent() at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Read() at System.Xml.Linq.XDocument.Load(XmlReader reader, LoadOptions options) at System.Xml.Linq.XDocument.Parse(String text, LoadOptions options) at System.Xml.Linq.XDocument.Parse(String text) at EPiServer.Install.MetaData.MetaDataParser.IsSupported(String packageXml) at EPiServer.Install.MetaData.MetaDataFinder.d__4.MoveNext() at System.Linq.Enumerable.d__14`2.MoveNext() at System.Linq.Buffer`1..ctor(IEnumerable`1 source) at System.Linq.OrderedEnumerable`1.d__0.MoveNext() at EPiServer.Install.UI.RunScriptForm.PopulateProductTree(TreeNode rootNode, InstalledProduct product) at EPiServer.Install.UI.RunScriptForm.PopulateProducts() at EPiServer.Install.UI.RunScriptForm..ctor(EPiServerInstallSection config) at EPiServer.Install.Program.DisplayWindow() at EPiServer.Install.Program.Main(String[] args),

This is my configuration file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
 <configSections>
  <section name="episerver.install" type="EPiServer.Install.Configuration.EPiServerInstallSection, EPiServerInstall"/>
 </configSections>
 <episerver.install>
  <roots>
   <add path="..\..\CMS" displayName="EPiServer CMS" />
  </roots>
 </episerver.install>
 <system.diagnostics>
  <trace autoflush="true" indentsize="4" />
  <sources>
   <source name="EPiServerInstall" switchName="EPiServerInstallLogLevel">
    <listeners>
     <add name="FileLog" />
    </listeners>
   </source>
  </sources>
  <switches>
   <add name="EPiServerInstallLogLevel" value="Verbose"/>
  </switches>
  <sharedListeners>
   <add name="FileLog"
     type="EPiServer.Install.RotatingTextWriterTraceListener, EPiServerInstall"
     initializeData="Logs\" />
  </sharedListeners>
 </system.diagnostics>
</configuration>

I am running Vista 64-bits. Does anyone have a clue what can be wrong?

    Looks like you could have a .metadata file that is not valid xml. Could you do a search for *.metadata in the episerver folder in program files and see what file it is?

    A workaround is probably to temporarily rename the file's but it would be good to know what file it is and it's contents.

    Hi Christian.

    What files are supposed to be there? I found 5 files:

    -  Public Templates

    - Install ZIP Module

    - SystemScripts

    - Upgrade Site

    -  ef45721c-3588-4f61-bb44-9a4d5795c785

    The last one is not an XML file. It looks like it was generated by ReSharper. When I removed it, everything worked fine. Don`t know how ReSharper generated that file though....

    Thanks for your help!

    BR, Tore
