Look I just installed NGallery with the installer heres what I did, your doing way too much work here:

1) delete any virtual directory that you already have for Ngallery
2) add/remove programs make sure ngallery is gone from there
3) start the installer
4) click yes next i agree all the way through
5) navigate to http://localhost/ngallery
6) enjoy

**You will not see an Ngallery folder or vd until you hit the http address once

I just completed this in 3 minutes

Glad that it did not much post problems to you. I guess , not having VS2003 is hurting me. Anyways, your earlier suggestion of SelectedItem.Value worked. Apologies, i tried something else and quick to shoot ans. Anyways, the project is build now. let me check it. Meanwhile, thanks a million for all the help. You are a Gem
