Environment: Window Server 2008 R2 x64, IIS7, SQL 2008 SP1
Reference Instructions:

I used the following two site for guidance.
"      http://www.adefwebserver.com/DotNetNukeHELP/DNN4_DevelopmentEnvironment/DNNDevelopmentWindowsVista.htm
"      http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/624/application-pool-identities/


Steps Followed:
1.      Create Database  DotNetNuke
2.      Create User Account  NukeAdmin
3.      Add NukeAdmin User Account to DotNetNuke DB as owner
4.      Create folder and extract Install 5.1.4  NukeFolder
5.      Add Default Application Pool identity to wwwroot folder with full rights&see http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/624/application-pool-identities/
6.      Edit web.config with SQL connection string  see http://www.adefwebserver.com/DotNetNukeHELP/DNN4_DevelopmentEnvironment/DNNDevelopmentWindowsVista.htm
7.      Create Application in Default Web site  pointing to NukeFolder with an alias of wwwNuke using the DefaultAppPool  identity
8.      Browse to localhost/wwwNuke

And here is where the problem begins. I get the following error.

Server Error in '/wwwNuke' Application.

I have tried this twice. Once on a server I didn't build and again on a fresh install I did myself. SQL is in Mixed mode and the userid and password has been confirmed to work via an ODBC connection from another machine.  Where did I go wrong or whats so new in IIS 7/SQL2008 that needs to be tweaked?
