Fair warning: this alpha version has not received the amount of tests you'll find in the final versions of Drupal 7. I would advise you to only install on test machines, as this version is not production-ready.
What the installation does
- Clean-up by dropping any previous installation of Drupal for SQL Server you might have,
- Create a new database,
- Copy the Drupal 7 installation files in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\drupal and sets permissions,
http://localhost/drupal/install.phpin your default browser.
This package should work on Windows XP SP3 (pro or better, you need IIS), and has been tested against French and English OSes.
You should have already installed the following:
- Sql Server Express
- PHP 5.3.2 (NTS VC9 version)
You can install those by following the instructions on http://www.microsoft.com/web/drupal
