    Found this on Moodle.

    Modifying the IIS 7.0/7.5 configuration (Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2)

    First increase activity and request time outs (allows large files to succeed on slow connections)
    FastCGI Settings > Edit (Right-click on PHP application)
    Set Process Model > Activity Timeout to '3600' (one hour)
    Set Process Model > Request Timeout to '3600' (one hour)Next set 'Maximum allowed content length'

    Request Filtering > Edit Feature Settings:
    Set 'Maximum allowed content length' to your desired file size (in bytes) e.g. '536870912' for 512MB (default is approximately 28.6MB)
    Thanks, but I did that as well and it didnt help. General consensus on the moodle forum is that the problem lies outside moodle, which is why I am looking at IIS and everything else!

    Could you not setup WAMP and see if you have the same issue? That would rule out IIS.

    Could do...if I knew how..

    Update on issue: after doing the IIS bits and pieces, the error message no longer appears. Instead, the progress bar goes across to about 1/3 and then...just stops. No message, no upload, no nothing

    Ok, this may help

    Fixing File Upload Size Limit in IIS 7 | cyprich.com

    You will have Moodle as an application i think you need to create a file called web.config (if it doesn't already exist) and add the text shown on the blog above

    That pot of straws has now definately run out
