It'll be the first non-gui install I ever did of Joomla on windows? Just wondering has anyone done it yet and if their is any gotcha's I should look out for?

Mod. Note: Relocated the topic to the Installation on IIS web server forum.

IIS does not use an .htaccess file, but uses a web.config instead. Joomla is shipped with webconfig.txt as a template.

Why would you not use the regular Joomla install ?

Thanks Webdongle for guiding me. I got caught up in brainstorming and troubleshooting and didn't think of the obvious. I will perform the regular Joomla install.
