Hi all,

So I have posted issues in a few other places on this forum and have gotten some quality feedback, but I have come to the conclusion that my setup is apparently different from any everyone elses because where others seem to experience no issues, I seem to be bringing my site to its knees regularly.

I installed SilverStripe using the Windows Web Platform Installer on a Windows XP Pro SP3 box I have, I have installed both MySQL and PHP5 and I know they are all functioning fine because the basic installation works (though that was not without plenty of issue). The problem I am having seems to be a permissions issue. I am running this on a Corporate Network and I had to use the ITAdmin password to access the IIS Localhost in the first place. All issues I have whenever I install both Themes or Modules (with exception to the Blog Module, dont ask me why it worked) stem from a "permission denied" issue and I have tried again and again to set the directories to NOT Read-Only but everytime I close the properties window and reoopen it, the dang thing has gone back to Read-Only.

I have posted another post here: where I ask for help on setting the directories to chmod 777 as in a Unix machine but have gotten no response.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
