This work fine if i create a new repo from hglab

I tried to copy my repository .hg to hglab's repo folder ( following the guide) and nothing happened. I added a project with the same name, and I manage to get my repo in HgLab. Pulling works, but pushing doens't work with the following error :

HTTP Error: 500 (Access to the path '...\.hg\store\00changelog.i' is denied.)

I had the look at the folder's permission and one to ASP.NET v4.0 is missing. I tried to add it without any success.

    Yeah, copying existing repositories over to HgLab can be messy due to NTFS permissons.

    Try running the following commands in the cmd.exe:

    icacls {hglab-home-directory} /t /remove:g iis_iusrs
    icacls {hglab-home-directory} /grant iis_iusrs:(OI)(CI)(F)
