“Server error in ‘/’ Application. Access to ‘c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\accthandheld’ is denied” returned after installing Mobile

There are times when right after installing the Mobile module onto your server, you will receive the following message when browsing to “localhost/accthandheld” and clicking on “Install”

Server error in ‘/’ Application. Access to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\accthandheld is denied.

This just means the current windows account you are on is not able to display the site. To correct this, click start > windows explorer. Browse to C:\inetpub\wwwroot, right click the “ACCTHandheld” folder > Properties > Security. Here you would just need to add the current user account you are logged into, or add “EVERYONE” then click APPLY and close. You should now be able to download the installer from the accthandheld webpage.
