Commerce manager 11.8.0 run on IIS


I have been trying to configure development environment on IIS and can't figure out what I'm missing. 

Almost everything is working:

  • I can login to CMS
  • I can create new site
  • I can see catalog
  • I can change roles for user
  • Application completed migration steps
  • I created databases by using 'Initialize-EPiDatabase' and 'Update-EPiDatabase'

But I have problem with CommerceManager application.

If I enable Widows authorization I can see login form with correct styles. If I enter credentials (admin/store) I will get 'Access Denied' error (Your account does not have rights to access this feature of the commerce manager. Please contact your system administrator for more information.)

If I disable Widows authorization for CommerceManager application I will get the next error:

Url: http://localhost:7150/Apps/Shell/Pages/default.aspx

I suppose you are creating a new site. I suggest to disable Windows authentication, and use the default AspNetIdentity implementation.

The login is, not admin/store.

During the EPiServer Commerce installation process several files were missed and this led to such strange issue.
