I was able to install SP 2010 on my Windows 7 64 bit machine using this link

I am now able to access the SharePoint Central Administration at port 24469. Something like:


I was able to create a new site collection and but am unable to access it. New site collection is at port 80.


I've done this workaround to no avail. I've also added


to the list of intranet sites. Did not work either.

Note that I am accessing the site from the server itself.

The error being returned is a 'Webpage not available' message.

  • the site was created at root level. when i browse the mymachinename:80, i get Webpage not available Aug 19 '14 at 11:04

You could check "Central Administration -> Site Collection -> Quotas and Locks" and check that your site collection isn't in a "no access" state. Source along with other conversations here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/appvirtualization/en-US/ebcd6e59-c429-4710-9ab2-00e962d55795/sharepoint-2010-not-able-to-access-site-collection-page-not-found

If you get a 404 you should check here: Going to a Site Collection homepage gives a 404

In the event you are getting an access denied -type of error, check here: http://www.brainlitter.com/2011/08/30/resolution-for-site-collection-admins-in-new-site-collection-get-access-denied/

I hope this helps at least a little bit! :-)

  • thanks for sharing but none of these work either. I'm not getting a 404 error but rather a 'Site not available' error Aug 19 '14 at 7:55
  • Ok sorry to hear that! I'll let you know if I come up with any other possible solutions.. EDIT: Just thought that does it require https to be used in the URL?
