Problem adding alert after successful installation of trial version of Alert Manager 2007


I just installed a trial version of Alert Manager 2007 to my development system.  It successfully deployed to the web apps I chose, and the SharePoint Central Admin pages.  YAY.

The development environment is a  single server farm, 32-bit WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 SP2.

Now I am testing and can't seem to get an alert created at all.  When I go to my test site and choose "Manage My Alerts" which resides on the web application to which Alert Manager is installed, I get to the Alert Manager "Manage Alerts" page.  I have no filters, and I go to New -> Add Alert.

 I have turned off SharePoint's "friendly" error messages as detailed in the ExCM help to reveal the following error:


The file '/_controltemplates/SPSolutions/AlertManager/InputFormSectionAlertSendConfirmation.ascx' does not exist.   at System.Web.UI.Util.CheckVirtualFileExists(VirtualPath virtualPath)
   at System.Web.Compilation.BuildManager.GetVPathBuildResultInternal(VirtualPath virtualPath, Boolean noBuild, Boolean allowCrossApp, Boolean allowBuildInPrecompile)

   at System.Web.UI.TemplateParser.ParseStringInternal(String text, Encoding fileEncoding)


When I look at the server at c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extenstions\12\TEMPLATE\CONTROL TEMPLATES\SPSolutions\AlertManager (I hope this is the correct location) I see a number of files beginning with the string "InputFormSectionAlert" but there's no file entitled "InputFormSectionAlertSendConfirmation.ascx".


Did I do something incorrectly or should the file exist elsewhere on the server's file system?

Please let me know what other information you need.

Thank you, in advance,
