Dotnetnuke 5.2 Instalation error

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

Ok thanks for your help on this. The reson behind it was:

In the web.config file for the install files i had to change the connection string to connect to Server > then DB  < then UID< then PW

once i did this it connected me and the install was a success.

Although your answer wasnt exactly right, reading through got me to thinking so i went back to basics and found it.

Some times we need a moment of clarity.

Thank yo u
