I have previously installed php and mysql on my server and they are running fine. I just downloaded wordpress but I get
when I try to run this file http://wuh.co/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php
I have gone to IIS7 and converted the wordpress folder as an application. I am running PHP5 and MySQL 5.1
Can anyone please direct me on how to solve this issue.
Thanks in advance.

Which "Application Pool" and Dot Net Version and Mode ?
Normally WordPress is set to Dot Net 2.0 "Classic".
What are the Account and User permissions for WordPress and the Admin folders ?
Normal permissions are you add the IUSR IIS_USRS Accounts to the folders.
You could install the Web Platform Tool and automate the Word Press install.

Martin, thanks for your response.
I had the Application Pool as DotNet 4.0, I just changed it to "Classic .NET AppPool" v2.0 (I get the same result).
How do I grant IUSR IIS_USRS permissions to the folder?
"You could install the Web Platform Tool and automate the Word Press install."
would that be the Microsoft Web Platform Installer 3.0?

Using IIS Manager go to the Wordpress site and use the Edit Permissions Pane and Security Tab.
Yes, The current Microsoft Web Platform installer is version 3.0 more information
