Error setting up & browsing dinnernow 3.1 on Windows 7


Hi helpers,
Just installed dinnernow on windows 7 . All prerequisites where verified during the configuration stage and site exists in IIS 7. I also made sure the default.aspx page is listed at the top of the default documents list for the dinnernow site in IIS.
However if i try to browse the site I get the following error(if no page is specified):
HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden
The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.
And if I browse Default.aspx from IIS 7, I get the 404 page not found error:
Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.
Requested URL: /DinnerNow/default.aspx
Module DirectoryListingModule
Notification ExecuteRequestHandler
Handler StaticFile
Error Code 0x00000000
Requested URL http://localhost:80/DinnerNow/ Physical Path C:\DinnerNow-3.1\solution\DinnerNow - ServicePortfolio2\source\
Logon Method Anonymous
Logon User Anonymous
I noticed that the physical path in message above, does not point to the DinnerNow-Web/DinnerNow.WebUX where the default page is located. The source directory mapping in IIS is:
C:\DinnerNow-3.1\solution\DinnerNow - Web\DinnerNow.WebUX
which is the correct location so I don't get where the 404 error is coming from.
dinnernow was downloaded to and installed from the local C drive so the file is on the drive. Any suggestions to solve this problem will be greatly appreciated. I can try a fresh reinstall if possible, so suggestions on how to do a clean reinstall are also welcomed.Thanks

Just solved the problem. Although the source directory in IIS was mapped correctly, For some reason the mapping in IIS (in another property setting) also pointed to C:\DinnerNow-3.1\solution\DinnerNow - ServicePortfolio2\source\ , likely because I initially tried to open the solution in visual studio before installing the site which made some changes in IIS.

I had to manually remove the application form IIS admin and recreate the application making sure all directory paths pointed to

:\DinnerNow-3.1\solution\DinnerNow - Web\DinnerNow.WebUX

Then refreshed the site node in IIS 7 admin and was able to browse to the home page without errors.
