Hi! I just try today install new EpiServer installation in new website. I created new web site and run EpiServer Manager 1.0 and I got this error: "An entry with the name ROOT already exists but is not a virtual directory (schema class IISWebVirtualDir)." And here is message from JIT: See the end of this message for details on invoking just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box. ************** Exception Text ************** System.ApplicationException: An entry with the name ROOT already exists but is not a virtual directory (schema class IISWebVirtualDir) at ElektroPost.Win32.Metabase.IIsWebVirtualDir..ctor(DirectoryEntry virtualDir) at ElektroPost.Win32.Metabase.IIsWebServer.CreateRoot() at EPiServerManager.Components.WebSite..ctor(IManagerEntity parent, IIsWebServer site) at EPiServerManager.Components.WebServer.LoadWebSites() at EPiServerManager.Controls.ManagerTreeView.Load() at EPiServerManager.Forms.MainForm.SetupForm() at EPiServerManager.Forms.MainForm.MainForm_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Form.OnLoad(EventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Form.OnCreateControl() at System.Windows.Forms.Control.CreateControl(Boolean fIgnoreVisible) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.CreateControl() at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmShowWindow(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.ScrollableControl.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.ContainerControl.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Form.WmShowWindow(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Form.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam) ************** Loaded Assemblies ************** mscorlib Assembly Version: 1.0.5000.0 Win32 Version: 1.1.4322.2032 CodeBase: file:///c:/windows/microsoft.net/framework/v1.1.4322/mscorlib.dll ---------------------------------------- EPiServerManager Assembly Version: 1.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 1.0.0.0 CodeBase: file:///C:/Program%20Files/EPiServer%20Manager/EPiServerManager.exe ---------------------------------------- System.Windows.Forms Assembly Version: 1.0.5000.0 Win32 Version: 1.1.4322.2032 CodeBase: file:///c:/windows/assembly/gac/system.windows.forms/1.0.5000.0__b77a5c561934e089/system.windows.forms.dll ---------------------------------------- System Assembly Version: 1.0.5000.0 Win32 Version: 1.1.4322.2032 CodeBase: file:///c:/windows/assembly/gac/system/1.0.5000.0__b77a5c561934e089/system.dll ---------------------------------------- System.Drawing Assembly Version: 1.0.5000.0 Win32 Version: 1.1.4322.2032 CodeBase: file:///c:/windows/assembly/gac/system.drawing/1.0.5000.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a/system.drawing.dll ---------------------------------------- ElektroPost.Win32 Assembly Version: 1.0.0.5 Win32 Version: 1.0.0.5 CodeBase: file:///c:/windows/assembly/gac/elektropost.win32/1.0.0.5__49582048716da0a9/elektropost.win32.dll ---------------------------------------- System.DirectoryServices Assembly Version: 1.0.5000.0 Win32 Version: 1.1.4322.2032 CodeBase: file:///c:/windows/assembly/gac/system.directoryservices/1.0.5000.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a/system.directoryservices.dll ---------------------------------------- ************** JIT Debugging ************** To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this application or machine (machine.config) must have the jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

I think we got it now. I have not seen this particular problem before, but it looks like the IIS metabase is somewhat corrupt. Do you know if somebody has perhaps modified the metabase manually? Normally the schema class name of a virtual directory is the exact string "IIsWebVirtualDir", but in the IIS with the problem it was "IISWebVirtualDir", according to the trace dump above (notice the prefix "IIs" vs "IIS"). Since the string should be exact, a case-sensitive string comparison was made, which failed and an exception was thrown. A workaround is to edit the metabase manually and change the schema name of virtual directories to "IIsWebVirtualDir", where needed. This issue should be gone in the next version of EPiServer Manager (v1.2), where we have modified the schema name comparison and made it case-insensitive, just in case. ;-)
