Maybe it is my fault. :-(

Reading now the script in OpenAxiom, I see that it sets
the AXIOM variable like Gaby explained. However, this
script cannot run in Windows.

In both installers, I use the AXIOMsys executable, following
the previous installer method.

If anybody has a suggestion of how I can handle this,
please let me know.

I apologize for any new friction I had introduced with this.
