Step a) works fine.  
I am running out of a new data dir with my upgrade.  I changed IIS to allow writes to the data dir (ignoring its warnings about potetial malicious attach), but the problem persists.
I've done a fair amount of python and I'm getting a little but familar with the source.  If I could just figure out a way to step through it in the debugger I'd figure this out myself.

a) run test.cgi
b) check WRITE permission on the user dir, the webserver needs them

I've installed the version 11 beta and all seems well with the exception of user ids. Users cannot create accounts and old users that don't have a cookie can't logon using their previously created preferences. Any advice on how to troubleshoot this?
