sorry ..

I've never run civicrm on windows, and didn't know it was even supported.

It's a directory write permission that it needs, to be able to write the civi config file.

What do You recommend

I guess I will setup a proper unix sandbox using Sun Virtual Box. What OS do you recommend? Any VM with Drupal & CiviCRM already available?

Thanks

I got it installed - just testing it out now - I just by-passed some lines of code in the requireWriteable function found in the install script.

It appears to have worked since CiviCrm has created and stores a bunch of stuff in the /sites/default/files/civicrm directory.

Will need to do some more testing before I'm sure I didn"t mess anything up.
