Hi Robert:

Did you get this issue fixed. I had the same problem, and it turns out
the IIS permissions are what's causing this error message. The message
is very misleading.

If you followed the installation instructions exactly as listed, then
just check your Default Website Permissions. Anonymous and Integrated
Windows Authentication should be enabled. And both, the ProjectServer
and Sharepoint Central virtual servers should have their Integrated
Windows Authentication enabled.

Let me know if this works for you.


Talking about misleading error messages!
