Comments will not post on 2.7 - No Error Message

I am using VS 2012, Windows Server 2012/IIS8 SQL Server 2012

I am using the XML files, Not SQL Server. I can write to the app_data folder for blog posts, pages, etc., but comments will not post. I just get the spinner rotating infinitely. On Server2012/IIS8 there is no ASP.NET account to give write privileges to. I have tried every other account - IUSR, IIS_IUSRS, Network Service and even Users.

I gave up trying to use SQL Server 2012 as the web.config was causing the site to not publish. I'll post that separately.

Is there anything logged in the logger.txt file?

No. It just hangs. However, given the rapid tempo of releases for this framework, I've decided to fall back to 2.6 and publish using VS2010 and use SQL Server instead of XML files. 2.6 = less bugs and works with SQL Server 2012 & IIS8. Problem solved.
