Error when installing site without database with EPiServer Deployment Center

Error when installing site without database with EPiServer Deployment Center



I've just downlaoded the latest version of EPiServer (5.2.375.133) and installed it on a PC with Windows Vista OS.
The installation went fine but when I tried to install EPiServer site (the option without database) The following error is thrown by the EPiServer Deployment Center:

An unhandled error has occured:

Method not found: 'Void Microsoft.Web.Administration.ServerManager.Dispose()'.

When executing

What can be the reason of this and how can I solve this issue?

    It sounds like you have a version of IIS7 where their ServerManager class does not have a Dispose method. Are you running a beta or CTP version of Vista?

    Can you please check the version of the Microsoft.Web.Administration assembly (should be found in C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv).

    The version of Microsoft.Web.Administration assembly that is on my machine is 6.6000.16386
    When I run winver command I am getting that the Windows version is Version 6.0 (Build 6000)

    It was the problem with the OS version...After I installed SP1 for Vista everything started to work fine
