I'm new to Sharepoint and have successfully installed Sharepoint Foundation 2010 on a Windows 7 x64 machine using the instructions on MSDN (instructions are fantastic; by the way). However, when i completed executing psconfigui.exe (Sharepoint Products
and Technologies Configuration Wizard) my default site was not displayed as mentioned in the setup instructions.
Instead I got a webpage cannot be found (HTTP 404) error. The URL displayed was "http://kweeks-dell"; which doesn't seem right to me.
I was able to run the Central Administration console and display various admin tasks; however, when i tried to create a new site (i.e. "http://kweeks-dell:10178/MyFirstSite"), I get an error message "URL Name contains illegal character ':'". Where
10178 is part of the URL of the admin site.
I'm really confused cuz i don't see any problems with my installation but yet i cannot get a site setup that i can start work with.
Anyone, I'd appreciate any help I can get.
