Windows/IIS can have problems with relative paths and I think that could be your problem. You could try hard coding the absolute path to oscommerce.sql, although, unless you intend on using IIS as a live server, you could just as well download Wamp or Xampp. From what I have seen on here on IIS installation, you may have more headaches in coming days.


However, if you want to try changing the path, look in catalog/install/rpc.php (assuming an RC2 installation), find this code


$sql_file = $dir_fs_www_root . '/oscommerce.sql';


and change it to the full path. i.e.


$sql_file = 'c:/inetpub/wwwroot/catalog/install/oscommerce.sql';
