I have recently installed a wordpress on my development machine (Windows 7, IIS 7) and all is working perfectly except for one thing - none of the theme or admin images are displaying!
Screenshot of admin
As you can see in the screenshot, I can upload an image into the content and that displays perfectly, but the standard images for the add image, add link etc. buttons aren't displaying. If I inspect the image using Chrome the image url seems to be correct - http://wordpress/wp-admin/images/media-button-image.gif?ver=20100531. If I view the image in a new tab I get a the 404 in the screenshot below:
If you look at the requested url and the physical path they are missing the wp-admin part of the path being requested in the address bar.
Would really appreciate your help,
