    I installed WebMatrix and when I click on "Create your first website using WebMatrix", I get the error "The page you are looking for is not available..." appears in my web browser. Why?

    Seems to be on a ASP website. http://www.asp.net/error

    Hello,

    If a default document is not found. You may be getting a 404.20.

    Try the following steps:

    Go to WebMatrix 'Settings' section and add new default document

    image09

    say default.cshtml (and make sure that default.cshtml is present in the site home directory)

    and try to run the site again.
