Installer asks for three pieces of information: Installation Directory, Home Directory and Connection String. If it didn't prompt for these then there's something fishy going on.
HgLab itself required .NET 4.0 (or 4.5 for x64 systems) only, but all .NET Framework versions live happliy side-by-side, so this shouldn't be a problem.
Getting HgLab to run on IIS 6.0 is a bit tricky. Things to check:
1. Ensure that .NET 4.0 is indeed registered in IIS (aspnet_regiis -ir)
2. Ensure that ASP.NET 4.0 is enabled in Web Server Extensions.
3. The website that runs HgLab should be configured to use an AppPool with ASP.NET 4.0
4. Wildcard mappings must be in place as well
5. Authentication mode must be set to "None" in Web.config
6. Anonymous authentication should be installed and enabled in IIS
Additionallly, I can offer a TeamViewer session so that I could help you out.
installer asked for the all three pieces of information:
Installdir is: C:\Programme\HgLab HQ\ (contains subdir HgLab with
Web.config and much more stuff)
Homedir is: D:\HgLab Home (contains only a subdir logs)
ConnectionString is: top-secret g

Had done this already... but lets do it one more time. ;-)
Start installing ASP.NET (4.0.30319) without changing existing web
applications to use this version of ASP.Net.

Don't know what to do or check here...

Any hints, what to do to check point 4 are welcome.
this works now... earlier there was a point, when it doesn't
work. At that point there was the "ressource not available-page"
from the browser...
I removed the "Standardsite", that pointed to an non existing
directory of an old app...
Original question is answered now... HgLab seems to work now
(could login, create first testproject...)
Question is now:
How do i move HgLab from host/* to host/hglab/ ?
IIS distinguishes a "Web Site" and a "Web Application". The
former is what allows IIS to "listen" to a particular hostname and
serve everything from the root (think
http://foo.example.com). The latter is effectively a
"subdirectory" inside a Web Site (the bar part in
In order to do what you want, you'll need to create a Web Site
(or reuse an existing one) with its Binding set to "localhost" (or
just empty), and then create a Web Application inside the Web
There are couple links at the bottom of the Installing
HgLab page and I can offer a helping hand with this over a
I will leave the website as is druing the trial. If we decide to buy HgLab later, i may try to move the site were it belongs… ;-)
Your website says „It’s a breeze to install…“ – from the view of somebody who is not using SQL Server Express normally nor IIS-Web-Applications i can’t follow this statement… For me more detailed install instruction would have been helpful.
At the end i got it up and running, but i had to google (and download) a lot.

Compared to what it takes to get HgWeb up and running on IIS/Apache,
integrate it with ActiveDirectory and set up email notifications - HgLab is
worlds simpler. But installation instructions definitely need more work,
thanks for pointing this out!
