Hi  All

I have a server no im installing DNN 5.2.0 every time i try to run the install i get
DotNetNuke Error


DotNetNuke Configuration Error
Access to the path 'D:\Conoportal\web.config' is denied.

Your DotNetNuke installation appears to have a security settings problem (most likely permissions). DotNetNuke has extensive file upload capabilities for content, modules, and skins. These features require custom security settings so that the application is able to create and remove files in your website.
Now i have specifcally gone through each file and made sure the network service account is in there and has full permisiions to evry file/folde..

Just for test puposes i tried the same installation files on a differnet server and they workd and installed fine..

Does anyone have any input on this please

Thank you
