I spoke to one of the administrators today, and he showed me that 
my TMP variable was set correctly. I would thus have to consider
this a bug in tlpmlgui.

The problem was fixed by deleting TEMP, which pointed to the same directory as TMP. I am not sure if the installation would eventually complete despite the error. If this information does not help someone who knows the inner working of tlpmgui find the cause of the problem, I will try to add more information at the end of the week.

the variable TMP to %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp.

I had that user settable variable pointing to a directory that did not
exist on some of the computers to which I logged in. The error message,
reasonably enough, was 
"no such file or directory"

However, simply creating that directory was not enough to avoid the error.
Deleting the TMP variable caused the DVD to silently fail to open. In all cases,
tlmpgui became unresponsive and the installation apparently did not complete.

Editing the variable suggested the default (perhaps the expected Windows
place for tmp?), which worked. 

If this is in the documentation, I am sorry that I could not find it. If it 
had not occurred to people that someone on Windows might break this,
I hope this report helps.

Before Karl left he mentioned three updates which would be nice (in
decreasing importance), or better which should be included:
- tlpmgui
- hyperref
- ntheorem

I have done the following:
- checked in the three changes
- rebuild the whole tl stuff (rebuild_tl, ie tpm files, lists, ls-R)
- made new images

So, new images are now available at the usual place, i.e. these file:

I HAVE NOT(!!!!) updated the links
asI consider myself NOT enough authorized to do the whole stuff, this is
up to Karl.

Anyway, PLEASE TEST ... there have been no big changes, but the update
of the tlpmgui stuff hoefully fix the problems we have seen recently on
the list.

I will be offline starting from a few hours, and more or less till
Wednesday noon CET. It might be that I have an Internet connection, but
this is not guaranteed!

Best wishes
