Hello Mike,

I tested the 20030218 and 20030220 versions of Gcl for windows, and I met some problems under Windows 98 :

- With 20030218 version, the file gcli.bat, used to run Gcl from the icon on the desktop, is created incorrectly : the second line begins with "echo start" instead of "start".

I think it is due to the fact that the file gclfinal.bat, that seems to create gcli.bat, is written by the installer with lines ending with LF only, instead of CR+LF. So, for the command.com, gclfinal.bat seems to write only one long line containing the second "echo" with the first "echo", instead of writing two lines with the two "echo".

After editing gcli.bat with Wordpad and deleting the spurious "echo", Gcl can be run from the icon.

- With 20030220 version, the same occurs, but the same solution does not allow to run Gcl, I obtain instead of Gcl prompt :

Error: Cannot get the truename of #p"C://Programs/GCL-2.5.0/lib/gcl-
Fast links are on: do (si::use-fast-links nil) for debugging
Error signalled by SYSTEM::GCL-TOP-LEVEL.
Broken at SYSTEM::SET-UP-TOP-LEVEL.  Type :H for Help.

I've just tried 20030224 on Windows Me and Windows XP.
Unfortunately in both cases it doesn't install into
default dir "C:\Program Files".  Next I've tried
C:\Programs and it went smoothly.  So maybe we
can make C:\Programs the default installation dir?
Not very elegant solution but it works.

There is also some tiny point about GCL desktop
icon.  I like very much the idea with transparent
lambda but strangely enough it works as expected
on Win Me only on Win XP whole icon appears
on the black square non transparent background.
Not a big deal though.
