I am having problems with the windows install. I did not want to go the apache mysql route because I prefer PostgreSQL. So, I downloaded php 5.1.6, installed the ISAPI plugin to IIS, changed the directory permissions.
I do the setup URL, and I get an error from the Smarty.class about a missing class (I forget the full message, it happened on Saturday).
My theory is that I have something screwed up in PHP. I tried modifying php.ini. However, when I did that it would make it to a blank license page. So I reverted it back without the php.ini.
It would be helpful if you documented a full windows out of the box installation.
BTW, it only took me 15minutes to set it up on my MacBook Pro (My Client prefers windows).
We can try to give you a hand with this, but first please have a look at:
