    I have installed wordpress for a website on win 2008 server r2 on IIS7
    the site comes up but when trying to upload a theme we get

    Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2013/05. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    HOW DO I SET PERMISSIONS FOR THIS

    THIS IS A WORDPRESS QUESTION
    word press operates in some fashion using IIS and windows users

    I need to know what services / users etc it uses to try to determine what to give permissions to.

    I cant be the only one to be running windows

    No - this is NOT a WordPress specific issue. You should already know how to manage permissions on your own server.
