404 Errors on member links and member search

    I have set up buddypress 1.6.4 on WordPress 3.5. The setup seems to have worked. I cannot give a link as it is an intranet site. The default theme for BP is working and i can click on members and it will display all of my members.
    The problem comes when i try to click on any of the members. I get a 404 error and this happens whether i have clicked on an active member or an inactive one. And if i try to search from the top right corner search(with the drop down where you can select members, groups, posts etc), i get the same 404 error.

    I have set up buddypress 1.6.4 on WordPress 3.5.

    - Should be on WP 3.5.1. Or was that a typo error?
    - Did you go through the Installation Wizard after activating BuddyPress?
    - Have you tried re-uploading BuddyPress plugin manually? i.e, via s/FTP etc?
    - Are you using any membership plugin? Please deactivate and check if issue is resolved.

    -No, it is 3.5 not 3.5.1
    -The installation works fine as i can get into the members and activities and such.
    -I have deleted the files and pages associated wtih BP and reinstalled. Still nothing
    -i have run it as the only plugin installed and still the same.

    I believe what is wrong is the permalink structure. When i look at the permalink options, they are all listed as http://www.website.com/index.php/2013/02/sample-post/ etc. I have tried to install BP in another place and it works fine but in looking at the permalink structure, it is http://www.website.com/2013/02/sample-post/

    The site I am trying to get working is in a windows environment with IIS and the working version i mentioned is xamplite.

    Is there a problem with the BP and the permalink structure having index.php in it?

    Then you should upgrade to WP 3.5.1 which includes bug fixes and compatible with BP 1.6.4. http://codex.buddypress.org/developer/releases/

    Is there a problem with the BP and the permalink structure having index.php in it?

    @magnuscreed Yes there is. You have to remove that index.php from permalink structure with BuddyPress. I’ve never hosted on Windows server, maybe the following info may help.
