Hi Steve,

My assumtion is that the Vista virtualisation/localisation fails in some
cases on the command line or parts of the code are hardcoded for special
folder names

that I mean:

physically there is a folder 'program files' on the harddisk but the
explorer shows it as 'Programme' if you have a german version and shows
it as ?? in other localisations

Before Vista, this folder had real different names in different
localisations, e.g. one was 'programs'

maybe that here went some things wrong

If things are so, TeX-Live should change the standard-behaviour to e.g.


'Die Physik erklärt die Geheimnisse der Natur nicht,
sie führt sie auf tiefer liegende Geheimnisse zurück.'
	Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker (1912-2007)
