I'm trying to install SIM 14. 160526 Update-3. When I run the wizard it gets to the "File System Permissions" screen and it says "Make sure the NETWORK SERVICE user account has full access to the following folder: c:\inetpub\wwwroot"
NETWORK SERVICE does have Full access to c:\inetpub\wwwroot but when I click on "Next" it says I probably don't have proper permissions set and to click on "Grant". When I click on "Grant" two popups appear. One says "Applying security changes" and has a progress bar and another says "Permissions were successfully set". It's weird that they both come up at exactly the same time. If I click OK on the "Permissions were successfully set" dialog box, the two dialogs disappear but then when I'm back where I started. I click "Next" I get the same message that I probably don't have proper permissions set etc.
Does anybody know how to resolve this? I have Sitecore 8.2 and I have a two-VM server setup. One with SQL Server 2014 on which I installed sitecore DB and another VM for the sitecore website. I am installing SIM on the sitecore website VM. I saw some posts where it said this is really a SQL Server permissions problem. The connection string the wizard is picking up is correct and I tried running SQL Server logged on as NETWORK SERVICE, Local Service and the Domain Administrator account but none made any difference.
I'd really appreciate any help with this!
