Bug description:  header() doen't work together with setcookie()

header("Pragma: no-cache");
header("Cache-Control: no-cache, must-revalidate");
if(empty($check)) {
$page = "index.php?check=1";
header("Location: $page");
setcookie("testcookie", "1");
else {
if(empty($testcookie)) {   
echo ("<font face=arial size=4 color=red>Problem detected!</font><br><br>" .
"<b>Your browser does not support cookies!</b><br><br>" .
"<img src=\"imgs/bullet-info-az.gif\" width=15 height=15 align=absmiddle> " .
"<font size=2>Enable cookies and try again.</font>");
else {
$page = "login.php";
header("Location: $page");

If I use this script with Apache running on any OS (Solaris/RH/Windows 98/ME/NT) it 
works fine. But if I use the same script with IIS it simply doesn't send the cookie! I 
receive no error message at all but the cookie is never sent (I have even tested it 
with Nestcape running on the same machine of IIS server with the warn if cookies are 
sent checked). The only workaround I have found was to substitute the header function 
for a meta-tag refresh. Can you please verify that?
Up the Power Trio!

P.S.: I'm only using IIS to host the application because it's a corporate enviroment; 
I have no choice at all.
