Error when opening /automaton/admin

Hello, I've downloaded the latest release from codeplex, installed it and when I try to go to /automaton/admin it throw a HTTP 404 error (and trying to go to /admin/default raise a security error).
I suppose that this is due to SharePoint Services (I use my tfs main server as the build machine). Is this a "supported" scenario and is there a workaround ?

The current release does not support to run under a SharePoint portal web site. I've created an issue out of this and it will be fixed asap.

Until then, create a new web site on your server and run it on a different domain or port (e.g. http://tfs01:81/Automaton/)

I've published a knowledge base on this issue that explains how to manually put an exclude for the automaton virtual directory.

Please follow these instructions until the installation does this for you:

Err : yes, I forgot to add a new post saying that I had managed to get over the 404 error (how stupid of me : I didn't even think of disabling sharepoint before my first post). But the security error is still there.
I didn't really had the time to search more, but I'll investigate the error. If I found something more detailled, I'll re-post my problem

Please try the new 1.0.8 release which should fix the issue related to security exception when running Automaton under a SharePoint site.
