I had this issue before, I think WebsitePanel 1.2 is no longer supported. Try installing WebsitePanel using this installer which worked perfectly fine for me.

Edit: Choose Standalone mode in WebsitePanel installation process.

Alright, Go to server manager, under Configuration browse Local Users and Groups then open User. In right pane if you see any user related to WebsitePanel (WP*) remove it and Try again. – Zim3r Dec 7 '12 at 14:06
