IIS6 and Registering Users via BuddyPress

  • I have installed WordPress and BuddyPress (3.04 and 1.2.7).

    I have implemented the url mode rewrite workaround for IIS 6 as explained in and

    Following this step, I have a working installation of WordPress. I can navigate to all pages and the site works without error. Similarly, all BuddyPress pages and all sites load without error.

    However, on the registration page ([]/register) when a user completes the sign-in details and selects ‘Complete Sign Up’ they are immediately redirected to the same page with the form cleared. The page, however, fails to complete loading and hangs indefinitely.

    Has anyone experienced similar behaviour and, more importantly, got a solution? I am running a very vanilla installation (default buddypress theme with no plugins other than buddypress). The abnormality I suspect is that I am running it on a Windows Server running IIS6.
