Vanilla fails to install on PHP5.2.17, Windows7, Apache2.2

edited November 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Hello, seems to me that Vanilla setup fails to save configuration to config.php at class.configuration.php, line 536:
chmod($TmpFile, 0775);
$Result = rename($TmpFile, $File); // Returns false.

After I modified code as follows, setup completed successfully:
chmod($TmpFile, 0775);
if(is_file($File)) {
$Result = rename($TmpFile, $File);

    @schket, I'm worried about your method because it is not atomic and susceptible to a race condition. Can you try the following:
    chmod($TmpFile, 0775);
    if (!rename($TmpFile, $File)) {
    if (copy($TmpFile, $File)) {
    $Result = TRUE;
    I'm proposing you try a copy and unlink the temp file rather than unlink the original file.
