I'm new to YAF and I'm trying to get the installation to work. I've gotten past a lot of obstacles, but I don't know what to do about this. Here's the error message:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Which Version did you use? Did you download the files from this site?

i found this was due to the install looking for the language folder in the incorrect path

so instead of looking at


it was looking at


I couldnt see where this path was being defined so I ended up changing the directory structure to match what the install was using.

This resolved the error for me.
