This problem comes up under Windows 95, but not NT, which is why
it was not spotted earlier. The remedy is posted on
http://www.tug.org/texlive/bugs.html; you have to
(assuming your CD is drive D:); and then "latex foo" will work. You
can of course put these lines in your autoexec.bat.
Sorry about this. We should have caught this before the CD was released.
