To get a more detailed error msg, find the web.config file for the app, which is at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Project Server 2007 Connector\Connector Web Site by default, and find the following:


<loggingConfiguration name=”Logging Application Block” tracingEnabled=”true” defaultCategory=”General” logWarningsWhenNoCategoriesMatch=”true”>


            <add source=”Enterprise Library Logging” formatter=”Text Formatter” log=”Application” machineName=”"


Change the tracingEnabled to “true”.

Then, just rerun the web page to get the error again, and then check your event log (as in, admin tools --> event log)


Hope that helps,
