Updating WordPress on Windows part II

A few months ago I wrote about a solution to allow me to update WordPress on the Windows Platform (in that case 3.4.2). It came in useful again as I have successfully updated to WordPress 3.5 this evening, taking advantage of some neat new features.

After the 3.5 update, some Theme updates became available, however these updates failed:

An error occurred while updating Twenty Eleven: Download failed. Destination directory for file streaming does not exist or is not writeable.

A quick google reveals that I’m not the only one having issues when using IIS. For now I’m happy without my Theme updates – I’ll update this post with how this gets resolved.
