Error – Unable to access the IIS metabase

On Windows 8 Pro:


On Windows 7 and 8.1 and 10


(Where %systemroot% is usually C:\Windows)

Navigate to the appropriate location above in Windows Explorer. You will be blocked access with a popup which says:

“You don’t have access to this folder – Click continue to permanently get access to this folder”

Click ‘continue’ for this folder, and with the Export folder underneath. I changed the shortcut back to “Run as me” (a member of the domain and local administrators ) and was able to open and deploy the solution.
