unable to run Dotnetnuke starterkit from the IDE


I installed dotnetnuke starterkit and made a new dotnetnuke website project in Visual studio 2005.
I renamed the file relaese.config into web.config and  press ctrl+F5.
After the build secceed message in VS I saw the installation process in internet explorer.
At the bottom of the page there was a message "installation succeed" and a link to a portal.

When I click this link I get an error page in IE "the page cannot be displayed" ... DNR error. The url is "http://localhost:3950/dst/"

I stopped the site and try again to "run without debugging" but still the same.

I use th edefault database and default settings. I did not made more change.

How can I do run the website from Visual studio2005.

Thank you
