I have installed SF 5.0 on a Win2008R2 server with IIS installed. I have other 4.3 and 4.4 sites set up and running fine on this server, however when I try to create a new SF 5.0 site using the Project Wizard and "http://" path location I get the error "FrontpageRPCException: Could not retrieve the server extension version." (See screenshots)

Hi Craig,

 This is probably a problem with the remote server not supporting FrontPageExtensions. Can you try creating the project locally and then deploy it on your server, rather than creating it directly on the server? This is usually the recommended process - create/develop/implement the project locally and then deploy it on the server, rather than directly creating it on the production server.

For future readers stumbling upon this post: I had this error creating a new 5.2 project. This is what solved it for me:

  1. Close the Project Manager.
  2. I had a commented out project in C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Sitefinity 5.2\Projects.xml and removed it.
  3. Start the Project Manager and try again.
