Oh - can you visit http://localhost/index.php ?

You may need to run dev build at http://localhost/index.php/dev/build

Note that there is no URL Rewriter on Windows XP, so your URLs will look like those mentioned at this URL.

okay tried browsing to :

http://localhost/index.php

and i got a fatal PHP error which was permissions related.

I checked the file permissions and found the Internet guest account didnt even have read access to the silverstripe files so i granted them modify,read and execute and write permissions and then when i type in the url

http://localhost/index.php

it appends the url to

http://localhost/index.php/dev/build?returnURL=

AND i get the 'HTTP 404 - File not found' error again.

I think ill just put this in the too hard basket for now im afraid. It clearly doesnt seem to work as simply as installing on wamp.

I am looking into this with some guys from Microsoft's WPI team; I'll post back when I have some more information.

Hi everyone,

For those of you installing on Windows XP, there is currently an additional manual step that you must perform. I have posted some instructions on the updated iis-installation wiki page.
