I've seen that when wasn't installed on the IIS. So instead of running the templates, the IIS serves the static default.htm file, which says that only core files have been installed. If you run "aspnet_regiis -i" does that solve the issue?

Also after you have actually deployed code to your site you can remove the file Default.htm (the file with the message ablove) that was deployed by installer.

Thanks for the input. Aspnet_regiis can't be used on windows 8. But it turns out that when you install the iis on windows 8 it doesn't install support by default.

Had to enable tcp and named pipe on the right sql instance aswell but now im up and running.

On Windows 8 you go to control panel, uninstall program, turn windows features on/off.

then Internet information services, world wide web services, application development features and there you select the .net features.
