Very very strange.  If the wiki.d/ folder was created automatically,
that means that the pmwiki.php script is being run, so there
must be something else going on.

What version of IIS?

You might try adding the following line to config.php, and then
see if you're able to access pages:

    $PageNotFoundHeaderFmt = "HTTP/1.1 200 Ok";

(I'm guessing that this won't fix things, but I'd like to verify that
PmWiki's page-not-found header isn't the source of the problem.  I
do know that this setting is necessary under Microsoft's 
"personal web server".)
