#7702: Uploading cover photo on windows servers

 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 When uploading a cover photo on a Windows installation, the system
 generates an error message "There was a problem uploading the cover
 image". Uploading a profile photo works fine.

 The issue seems to be that $cover_dir contains a full filesystem path such
 as "C:\Hosting\Website\wp-content\[…]" which then fails on line 1317 of

 if ( 0 !== validate_file( $cover_dir ) || ! is_dir( $cover_dir ) ) {

 validate_file returns a “2”, as the path has a colon in the second
 character position.

 Removing this check allows the code to continue, but it still fails on the
 resizing and cropping.

 Another use with the same issue
