Installing Orchard CMS via WebDeploy on Windows Server 2012

I have installed Orchard CMS via the WebDeploy GUI on a Windows Server 2012 box with SQL Server 2012. However, the automatically opened localhost/orchard web page is just blank.

I am using IE10 and have turned off friendly errors but still no message or text just a blank white screen. Can anyone help?

When you say you have installed it, do you mean you have already gone through the setup phase?

No I have not gone through the setup phase as the setup page will not load. I have ensured that MVC 4 is installed on the server and that the appPool is set to .net 4.0 integrated.

Is there something else I am missing?

Well, you don't need MVC installed, but from what you describe, it looks more like IIS is missing essential modules. Please test a simple page and see if it works. I'm suspecting that it won't.
