When i build this project, i got this error : 
"It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS"
how to solve this? (I'm using win7 Home Premium)

edit: @rtur; thank you so much. i installed BlogEngine.NET 2.5 (source) and my problem solved.

Looks like you trying to build project configured for IIS deployment. If you want to build source code, you'll need download "BlogEngine.NET 2.5 (source)" project instead of "(web)". Also it shows modifications to project structure, app_code folder with .MDF file at solution level - I'd recommend first download and build project making sure clean install works fine, then do modifications.
