We have to investigate the issue. What you can try to get going until we have a better solution is to delete the whole content in the AppData folder and try again to start it by visiting the homepage. If the folder AppData is empty the kit should initialize the basic data files.

Thanks a lot for the feedback

I was able to open it using Visual Studio/open website and browse that way. So it is possible that my IIS is acting up once again. If noone else is experiencing this, I guess it's me :)

Ok, here is the error I am getting.
If you download, unzip and then try to run you get
Server Error in '/MyWebPagesStarterKit_1.0.2' Application.

Dear "Starter Kit" User

The error is not indication to the Starter Kit Package, but to the IIS-Configuration of your webserver.

What version of IIS are you using ?

You need to check, if in the properties of your Web Site in IIS the Application Name is empty or not. In case it is empty you just click on "create".

I hope this helps!

Best regards,
