FileSystem External Content: Error adding connector

i'm a newbie to silverstripe. I have installed the external-content module and the filesystem content module. I did a dev/build went to the 'External Content' tab. Under the Connectors pane, I can choose between 'Create' and 'Delete' and the only choice in the pull-down menu is 'FileSystemContentSource'.

When I click 'Create', I immediately get an error message: "Error creating connector".

However, when I hit F5 to refresh the page, I see an item called 'New Connector' under 'All Connectors'. I cannot do anything with that connector. Even if I try to rename the connector and save, it says "Error saving content".

Is there any way I can troubleshoot this issue?

I am using silverstrip 2.4.3 under Windows Server 2008 R2 on IIS 7.5. Also, in FileSystemContentSource.php, my base path is set as follows.

public static $base_path = 'D:\data\webdocs';

This folder has read/write rights for Everyone:

I removed the external-content and filesystem-connector folder and re-installed them and did a rebuld. I was able to install correctly but now I'm running into the following error message when I click on External Content:

[Warning] strpos(): Empty delimiter
GET /admin/external-content/
Line 94 in D:\sites\staff\filesystem-connector\code\model\FileSystemContentSource.php

any suggestions?

To be honest ive had MAJOR issues getting this to work.
Ive tried all revs and finally got one working!

Seems a bit flakey though but will have to see after further more testing.
