Hi,

I had installed the *whole* demo cd on my notebook with xemtex
and everything selected. When I checked the map files, I had
\texlive\texmf\fonts\map\dvips\updmap\dvips.map and
\texlive\texmf\fonts\map\pdftex\updmap\pdftex.map, etc.
with 0 bytes.

Some of the problems I reported last time were solved,
when I renamed the whole texlive tree, and began to install
to a new one. Finally I found that in the old (renamed) one,
several files had the attribute "r" (readonly), so they
were not overwritten and the (re)install script reported them
with error 5 and stopped on that package. I do not know how
an readonly setting can happen, when installed over and over
again. But, my fault, I never really checked in depth the log
files where this was written.

Now I have a new system, I've made the map files manually.
Now with the fix to tex-live.sty by Stazek (\def\ttdefault{lmtt}).
I have a system, which runs (on live.tex) or to be precise:
it can compile the documentation again, sigh...

But I've tried "texexec" and I'm getting:
irun: no perl.exe script
of name c:\Progra~1\TeXlive\texmf\context\perltk\texexec.pl can be found.
Aborting.
irun: CreateProcess 3
How does it now about an very old installation, deleted more than two weeks
ago? Where is that stored?
The new one is on d:\tl8\texmf\context\perltk\texexec.pl.

Now I'm trying to download the new demo image, and try that. But slowly I'm
nerved, having fiddled around with the system for days and not written a page
of the documentation (but lost some when I had the blue screens).
>From tomorrow I will be on the DANTE meeting till Tuesday evening,
on Wednesday I'm going to drive with Hans to Metz and on to attend the
GUTenberg meeting till Friday.
