I was not able to install the theme using WordPress -> Appearance -> Install Theme -> Upload. The error message I got was:

Unpacking the package…

Could not copy file. C:/web/asiadivingvacation.com/wwwroot/blog/wp-content/upgrade/rachelbaker-bootstrapwp-Twitter-Bootstrap-for-WordPress-v.90-release-5-g9bc20212/rachelbaker-bootstrapwp-Twitter-Bootstrap-for-WordPress-9bc2021/img/glyphicons/glyphicons_155_show_thumbnails.png

But uploading the unzipped files directly into the themes folder works.

Maybe the pathname is too long?



I think that the problem is that webuser does not have rights to write into C:/web/asiadivingvacation.com/wwwroot/blog/wp-content/upgrade directory. In case if you logged into windows machine you have another access level rights which allow you to upload and unzip everything w/out any problem.
