Windows Server 2008.

Thank you!

Could you please provide more information about error? as far as I see from your message you have syntax fout by not closing "20480  <---- by quotation mark :)

The context of error is very important to understand the issue.So three lines above ,three lines below error and we can talk more about.....

I want to say thanks for your reply because am so willing to try Composite for my future web designing.
Of course... any further detail I can publish may be relevant. This happens right away, not even a little step of Installation occurs.

I reinstalled Composite today in the same hosting after a complete reset: I am afraid such error was because the change between ASP.NET 2/3.5
despite shown in the control panel had not really been activated, probably I should have waited some time after the switching.

So now ASP.NET 4 Full trust has been activated fully and I do not have such error any longer but GOSH.... this is what I have now:

404 - File or directory not found.The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

I want to say that COMPOSITE was dropped for installation in the WWW not in a subdomain.

This version of COMPOSITE is:

I hope is the right one for web deployment!!!      here is CompositeC1 CMS

well, somethings is obviously not configured right. and i believe you when you say that Composite was extracted to your domain, coz i can without problem access ie. It seems more like a configuration error of IIS, not allowing it to execute .aspx files or .Net in general since is not working either.

.NET 4.0 is either not registered in IIS, or it is disabled. Usually I do the following:

1) Open .net installation folder, something like C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.xxxxx 

and run "aspnet_regiis -i"

2) Enable 4.0 in IIS

IIS 6.0

IIS 7.0

I already realized... suspected that IIS could not process .aspx files but since it is a real ASP.NET hosting I thought to be wrong.

I do not have control on IIS myself, need to report this to the Hosting Provider guys and will let ya know what I have as reply.

I have other domains active by the same provider and I tried CompositeC1 there too, with the same result.

Appreciate your help and will let ya know. ::)) Thanking ya froom ITALY!

Integrated Mode: this is what the Hosting Provider in Canada promptly activated for me. I sent them what I learned from you here,
in your posts to my trouble. I owe isqsolutions a lot as to performance but have to thank you first for your support and kind suggestions.

INSTALLATION OF COMPOSITE C1: I could then start and complete the installation of CompositeC1. It  was smooth as I have never seen before in life!

Then now..... YYYYAAAAYYYY! I am rushing to play with CompositeC1!!! See you later guys!
