I’ve scoured the Web and cannot find a solution. WebMatrix 2 will not install on my Windows 7 laptop computer. On repeated attempts, I get an error: The location of the Document folder could not be determined. The application is unable to continue and will
exit. – then shuts down. I'm an adminstrator on the laptop and I've tried installing it manually with the same results. Can anyone help?

The location of the Document folder could not be determined. The application is unable to continue and will exit.
The default document folder is located at %userprofile%\documents . Please check if you have "My Web sites" and "IISExpress" folder there.
Also ,please try: uninstall IISExpress and webmatrix then reinstall your webmatrix.

I uninstalled both apps and reinstalled with the same resulting error. I can't confirm that "My Web sites" and "IISExpress" folder is there becuase I'm uncertain of the location of %userprofile%\documents. If you're refering to the Windows 7 C:\Users profiles,
there is no folder named documents. There's a folder named My Documents and it does not contain these folder names.
