Clean install: "Object Moved" when trying to access xxxxx.com/install

ISS 7 - win 2008 stdrd. Xen requirement checker passed.

So I extract the xenforo.zip, grab the content of the upload directory, place them straight in wwwroot.

I then try to access xxxx.com/install. I get:

Code:
Object Moved
This document may be found here
And the link goes to the same page I'm on.

Anyone knows what that could be?

I've just tried running that same page on chrome rather than opera, I get:

Code:
This webpage has a redirect loop
The webpage at http://xxxxxx.com/install/index.php?install/ has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this web page later.

Funny enough I had it disabled at first, then enabled it when I suspected that might be the problem. Didn't work.

Quick update: I've removed it, just so we are all on the same page. Same thing
It has to be something with the web server configuration. When I searched for this error last night all I found were fingers pointing to IIS redirection settings. I don't have any suggestions other than that.

Different browsers can handle 302 redirects differently. Hence the different error message.

This is from Xenforo support's Mike (awesome support by the way!!!!)

"My thoughts were confirmed - this is an IIS bug. It's down to IIS setting the REQUEST_URI incorrectly. A request to "/install/index.php?install/" is showing up in the REQUEST_URI as "/install/index.php". This is inconsistent with other web servers.
It appears that Microsoft has issued a hotfix for this.

"

I can confirm this did fix the problem. I hope this helps others in the future.
