Please note that Worker process (Account: NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE or IIS APPPOOL\ApplicationPoolName, depending on your settings) needs to have write permissions on the web.config in order to write all settings and to complete the installation.

After applying the correct folder permissions, our installation wizard should look as shown below. Click on Next.
Check the licence agreement and click on Next.
