wordpress 2.7

hi guys

just thought i would ask..

i have recently subscribed to a windows host and am trying to install wordpress 2.7, now in the hosts control panel they allow you to auto install wordpress 1.5, but the theme which i wish to use requires 2.7, so i have gone through WP's famous 5 minute installation process and now 1 day later i am still having difficulty.

I have tried the wordpress support forums but not having much luck, bascially I have just uploaded WP 2.7 via Smart FTP into my directory folder, i have also changed the database username, the username, password and have left the host name as localhost, this has now been saved to

I have then tried to begin the 1st step of wordpress at.

but am receiving an error message, can someone please advise what i am doing wrong in basic newbie instructions?

Also can WP 2.7 actually run successfully on windows as they say it can but i think to be troublefree u have to go linux which cannot support all of my needs.

Any help would be hugley appreciated?

Have you overwritten the files that were in the existing WP install? If so it seems you have a path wrong.

http://www.highavenue.co.uk/wp-admin/install.php works to an extent. Flush the DB tables and try again.
