Re: Error - XML Parsing Error: no element found
I'm not quite sure I understand your scenario. You are developing on XP and then deploying on XP?
Does it work for you in VS 2005? You should always make sure it works on your dev machine in VS 2005 before deployment elsewhere.
Did you setup the database? Which data layer are you using? If you hit the play button in VS 2005 does it work?
Do you see any error messages in Data/currentlog.config file?
Using UnleashIt with the appropriate file masks should output all the needed files, copying the web folder you get source code files which are not needed for deployment.
There is a bug in 2.1.4 error handling where it shows this xml parsing error instead which kind of masks the underlying error. This issue is fixed in svn and hopefully I will be making a new release today with this correction. On your dev machine you should be able to find out any error by debugging in VS 2005 (hit the play button)
Hope it helps,
