Uploading cover photo on windows servers

Description

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 bp-core-attachments.php

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.
