Another: Unable to create directory (2 posts)

    I have just installed WordPress on Windows Xp Pro IIS.
    I have given the wp-content and subfolders (uploads) all permissions and still i get the following error:
    Unable to create directory C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress/wp-content/uploads.
    Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    I think it has something to do with the slashes, any tips would be greatly appreciated chmod just won't fix it.

    Actually it's asking you is wp-content is writable by the webserver. May want to check that.
