Windows Installation Errors

YaBB SE Version: 1.5.5
PHP Version: 4.3.4
MySQL Version: 3.23.x
Server Platform: Windows 2000, XP, or 2003

Problem Description:
I'm trying to install Yabbse 1.5.5 on XP Pro.  When I run install.php I get errors like the following on all fopen(), chmod() and touch() calls, ie: whenever it tries to access a file:

Warning: fopen(c:/inetpub/wwwroot/yabbse/attachments/index.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\yabbse\install.php on line 219

Because (I assume) of this, there are also errors on fputs() and fclose().

I've made sure all the file are R/W at O/S level and I've enabled "Write" in IIS for the directory.  Also, having searched here, I changed my php.ini to include:

register_globals = On

Any clues what else I can try ..?

Actually, you'll want to DISABLE write.  Quickly, too because it gives people over the internet access to WRITE to files.

However, instead you want to give the Internet Guest account permissions on the files themselves.  Not in IIS, but in Windows Explorer - where you change regular permissions.
