    Just installed wordpress 3.0.1 on windows 2008 server running php 5.3.3 fastcgi on iis 7 with a local mysql 5.1 db. I can login to the wp-admin area and alter posts etc, but get a 500 error when I browse to the front index.php. There is nothing interesting in eventlog or the iis log and I dont get much from the 500 page in IE other than check permissions, event logs, dll permissions etc. Any ideas?
