Good Afternoon all

Im trying to set up Eventum 2.1, I have php, IIS 5, and mysql correctly set up, the only errors Im getting now is that 4 directories are not writable


I have made sure that the writable is checked in IIS (default web Site) but whenever I uncheck the read only on the folder properties (windows explorer) it will not uncheck it permanently.

Any ideas?

Your answer is close enough to the solution I worked out though.
