So I followed the instructions below and made sure I installed all IIS options as the pre-requisite checker does not seem to notify you of missing IIS roles. Once doing so the Distributed app as least runs now. I bumbled my review up from a 1 to a 3. I don't know how feature rich this is supposed to be. I was able to make a user account but can't seem to do much with the thin app.

Broken out of the box if you are using tools current to this post. I would list the errors but there were too many.

In order to make this release work, it required some debugging. Before installation... Open and close each project (sln file) in Visual Studios. It updates component locations in the sln file. MakeCert bug needs some refinement. It doesn't work right. I got it to work but forgot the fix I used but it was simple mod of the Powershell Script by checking the makecert syntaxes.
