Originally, this article was entitled "How to make Windows' Drush Make command work in Drush 5.7" but it has evolved into "How to manually upgrade Drush on Windows XP and 7".
The Drush Make command does not work in Windows 7 / Vista, when using Drush release 5.5, 5.6, or 5.7. There is a Drush 5.8 windows installer, which fixes the make issue. However, if you want to upgrade to drush 5.9 or 6.0, there are no installers for them. No worries. This article will provides instructions for manually installing the latest version of Drush in Windows.Read more
I have Drupal 7 running on Server 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5 and MSSQL 2008.
I am wanting to use drupal to replace a legacy application that runs on an Oracle Database.
I have copied over a specific table from Oracle to another database on the same MSSQL server as Drupal is connected to.
I now want/need to move circa 320,000 articles from that table and create them as nodes within Drupal.Read more
I'm not trying to stir the pot so-to-speak; I'm just trying to figure out why nothing's happening with what many see as an important issue with the SQL Server driver for Drupal 7. This driver is maintained by the Commerce Guys.
There has been a major issue with the update from Drupal 7.12 to 7.14 and 7.15 for several months that was noted on these two reported issues:

I cannot get my server to send emails with PHP. This is true within my Drupal install as well as with a simple PHP mail script. I am new to server management, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am running IIS 7.5 on a Windows Server 2008 R2. The mail function in my PHP.ini is as follows:
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost
smtp_port = 25
I am trying to install drupal on my shared hosting plan. I have already successfully installed drupal 7.14 on my desktop windows server 2008 with IIS7. I plan to recreate the same site on the 3rd party webhost.
The hosting plan has the following:
1. Windows server 2008
3. PHP 5.2.5
4. MySQL 5.0.91
I have setup my core drupal install at a subdomain http://dessites.des-us.com. It was working quite correctly, until suddenly, I get this error on browsing to the site:
Fatal error: Class 'PDO' not found in ........includes\database\database.inc on line 184
SA 2006-006 makes it impossible to execute php inside the Drupal files directory on Apache servers. This is a defense in depth mechanism along with things like file_munge_filename and file extension limits in php.
Windows doesn't benefit from that change since the change was in .htaccess.
Is there a way to prevent IIS from executing files inside a specific directory? Is there some way we can bundle that up and ship it with Drupal like the web.config?
Drupal 7 / MS SQLSRV / IIS 7.5 (on localhost)
I'm trying to create a multisite setup on my localhost account with Drupal 7, and it's not been as easy as I had hoped. The biggest issue is that all of the tutorials on setting it up are for Apache and/or hosted setups.
This is what I need:
Does anyone either know of a great tutorial or documentation on how to do this? If not, some basic steps on accomplishing this would be great. Thanks for any help.
Jag utvecklar en internwebb med D7. I labbstadiet har jag kört vanlig konfiguration med Apache, PHP och MySQL. Dock godkänns inte den konfigurationen av koncernens IT-avdelning, som vill ha så mycket Microsoft det bara går.
Jag har därför skaffat en Windows 2008 R2 server med IIS 7.5, PHP 5.3 samt MS SQL (ej SQLExpress).
D7 har jag tagit via webmatrix (distributionen från Commerce Guys) samt säkerställt att PHP är rätt version hämtad från Microsoft. Allt ser rätt ut i php.ini men...Read more

I created this group to see what kind of interest there is in running Drupal 7 on a Windows environment. There is already a group to dedicated to Drupal on IIS, which has a good following of people interested in getting Drupal running under Microsoft's Internet Information Servier. The group is mostly focused on Drupal 6, and has some good content.
I wanted a group to discuss the specific issues around running Drupal 7 on Windows, particularly the use of Microsoft's SQL Server as a replacement for MySQL. This is made possible by the work done by a team at Microsoft that wrote a driver for SQL Server, and then packaged up the whole thing as an installable item.Read more
