No

Starting from scratch with a clean 1.7.3 install.
Create db
Run tiki-install.php
Enter
$host_tiki='localhost';
$user_tiki='dbUserName';
$pass_tiki='dbPassword';
$dbs_tiki='dbName';

All good until:
Click on Create database from scratch.
Warning: MYSQL error: DB Error: unknown error in query:
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS galaxia_activities;
in F:\inetpub\WWWROOT\tiki173\tiki-install.php on line 24

Bummer!

    Update:

    Using phpMyAdmin, ran tiki.sql...
    Your SQL-query has been executed successfully :
    The content of your file has been inserted. (478 Instructions)
    (161 tables)

    If you can, re-test this with 1.7.4 and 1.8 RC and let us
    know if it still occurs for you.

    Clive,

    Judging from your update, I assume you were able to get
    TikiWiki working ok. Yes?

    Adam,

    Yes, the install of 1.7.3 as mentioned was manually completed
    using phpMyAdmin. I guess the install script was faulty.

    Dennis,

    I d/l the 1.8 RC2 CVS and did a clean install with a new DB.
    The install procedure completed flawlessly using the default
    profile.

    Well done.
    Clive
