OK. Those are long threads dealing with many different issues. Not
that I want to beat a dead horse, but looking quickly at some of the
things dealt with I can see that there seems to be a mix of forward
and backward slashes in many of the paths. Forward slashes does work
(sometimes) in paths on NT based Windows, but not at all in the
others. Also I spotted things like


That will not work, since Win will see only one path component. It must be


if quotes are used at all.

I guess some of those problems could be put to rest if the installer
used short names everywhere on DOS based windows.
