     Type:  defect (bug)     |      Status:  new            
 Priority:  normal           |   Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Upgrade/Install  |     Version:  3.0.1          
 Severity:  normal           |    Keywords:                 
 Steps to reproduce:

 1. Download and extract to Windows Server 2003 with IIS6 (fast-cgi, PHP
 2. Create a wp-config.php file pointing to an empty database or any
 database with no tables matching the selected prefix.[[BR]]
 3. Create a new virtual directory on IIS site example.com named myblog,
 pointing to the newly created wordpress directory, hence accessible as URL
 4. Point your browser to this (root) URL (you will '''not''' be
 redirected), and the WordPress install page (step 1) will appear[[BR]]
 5. Fill out the form and hit Install WordPress[[BR]]
 6. Tthe browser will show URL http://example.com/myblog/install.php?step=2
 and status 404 Not found is shown.

 I think that the error is in step 4. You should be redirected to

 If you in step 4 direct yout browser to http://example.com/myblog/wp-
 admin/ the installation will go on without this error.

 Tested with Firefox and Chrome. Works fine on IIS7.
