I downloaded the new 4.7 monox nightly build (MonoX_4_7_0_3817.zip) and opened it as website in Visual studio.

I have already created a blank database on my server (on local machine).

Now when I press F5, I don;t get installation screen to enter database credentials in monox, in fact it throws an error msg saying:

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server

Also, if I run the "CreateDatabase.sql" script against the database on server and add the connectionstring details manually in web config, it thrown an error about foreign key conflict.

I have also tried creating a blank database on server and just setting up the connection string for blank database in webconfig but then I get error about "Invalid object name dbo.Language".

Hi,

thanks for the feedback, latest CI scripts were broken so they produced a broken installation. We have fixed the CI scripts and introduced some other fixes too. New build is pushed to the site so please download and try again.

Your other two posts are related to above in one case and in another you didn't go through the whole process of manual installation. If you try to download latest build and retry you should have to hassle with the manual installation.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks

So how would you like me to install monox on my local machine using Visual Studio 2010 ?

1) Should I just open it as a website and press F5 and I should see the installation process ?

2) Should I create a blank database on server and manually add the server / login credentials in connectionstring in webconfig ?

3) Should I do the 2nd step plus run the "CreateDatabase" script against the new blank database ?

To answer you shortly ...

So how would you like me to install monox on my local machine using Visual Studio 2010 ? YES
 
1) Should I just open it as a website and press F5 and I should see the installation process ? YES
 
2) Should I create a blank database on server and manually add the server / login credentials in connectionstring in webconfig ? NO, you should create blank database and manually add credentials then you should start MonoX installation
 
3) Should I do the 2nd step plus run the "CreateDatabase" script against the new blank database ? NO
Regards
