I am trying to install osCommerce to Win XP, in the past I have always done this on a Ubuntu LAMP server but trying to get this working on my laptop for development.
I have check security and this is full everything on the directory in both Windows and IIS but I am getting the following error,
The webserver is not able to save the installation parameters to its configuration files.
The following files need to have their file permissions set to world-writeable (chmod 777):

Can anyone help with this as I am a bit lost / have check all IIS and Windows Permissions
Thanks, it is probably a very amateur error

Windows permissions apparently don't work quite the same way as Linux. My understanding is that the default is read-write for the "owner" and read-only for everyone else. If PHP is running as "someone else", it may be seeing a "read-only" flag on files and folders. I think you're going to have to dig through Windows permissions system and remove "read-only" flags (as seen by others) on certain files and folders. I've never set up a server on Windows, so that's about all I can say on the matter.

Got it thanks everyone, if you disable simple sharing in XP then you get extended properties and can fix it through there
