Thanks for the testing!

0.16 on Win32 doesn't check for HOME, but rather for HOMEDRIVE and
HOMEPATH.  Current development versions (and upcoming 0.17 release)
check for MONOTONE_HOME, HOME (iff using cygwin/mingw), USERPROFILE,
and HOMEDRIVE/HOMEPATH, in that order, see discussion at:

Does that sound like it would fix your problem?

This goes a liddle bit better for Windos 98. Now have the next problem.

set EDITOR=notepad
monotone --db=test98.db --branch="test98" commit

This open a editor with empty new file. I see a message box with mistaken slash in filename: "C:\WINDOWS\TEMP/mt.EORZYT". No files "mt.*" exist on my drive.
Where do you put the logfile under Windows. (I know this from Linux.)

This line works:
monotone --db=test98.db --branch="test98" commit "my comment for log"
