    Can we have info:
    wp version
    server specs
    and as much other stuff you think we should know.

    I’ve the same problem.
    I used Version 1.0.1
    PHP 4.3.3
    MySQL 4.0.15 – Standard

    and I added PHP4 extention in the control pannel of my site.

    same problem here:
    xp pro IIS 5.1
    WP 1.2
    PHP 5.0.3
    MySql 4.1.9 (standard install)

    it’s stuck somewhere in upgrade_all()

    Ditto with installing 1.2.2 on TextDrive.

    I checked the database and noticed the the user table was created successfully, so I hacked the intall.php to get the admin password, etc.
    Something definitely failed, though, as I cannot make changes to certain settings in the admin including:

    Options\General\Times in the weblog should differ by
    Options\Permalinks\Category prefix
    Plugins — Can’t activate Search Hilite

    A search for “Step 3” returns this result:

    Ah, your search-foo is better than mine, macmanx. 😉

    So, for the record, I changed line 705 in /wp-admin/upgrade-functions.php that reads:
    if ($res[0]['Type'] != 'varchar(32)') {
    if ($res[0]->Type != 'varchar(32)') {

    Then I ran upgrade.php.

    Now it’s all working fine.

    i had the same problems everyone was having. i was about to throw my computer out the window in frustration and curse until the cows came home. then i figured it was probably not meant to run on IIS. i emailed them right away to switch me over to Unix, and surely, it is five minutes!
