Like the script very much...

Only thing I noticed was when I tested it on Windows... the install tried to put the unix / at the end of each directory path (and succeeded).

In the GLOBALS.php I had to edit the paths replacing / with \\ and \ with \\ (only in the paths not the URLs of course).

Hope this is of use.....lot less bugs than others I tried!

Regards
Sean

Have you tried putting \\ at the end of the directory path, that should have also worked?

Actually on Windows PHP can use / as well as \\ without a problem. The / may be a little unfamiliar to Windows users, who are used to \, but \ is an escape character, so whenever it is used you must enter it as \\ to avoid problems. So, IMHO it is easier to use /.

Yes that worked well, as I said in my post: "I had to edit the paths replacing / with \\ and \ with \\ (only in the paths not the URLs of course)"

I thin the 'problem' may have been during installation when the path is prefilled with my path eg: E:\www\/....which may have looked at little strange so I edited it to say E:\www\ the end result in the GLOBALs was something like "E:\www\/" wich did not work...howevet manually changing to "E:\\www\\". The double \ as you say to avoid the special character \w and escaping the " with \".

But thanks for you reply.

I see the problem. I'll make sure version 1.2.1, which should be out shortly no longer has that problem.
