Hi Pete,

It looks like your system is objecting to the directory name ".gnubg",
probably because of the "." in the folder name.

I don't know how to get round it though, sorry. Anyone else have a clue?

You could try creating the directory by hand and see if the install
routine works thereafter. You should have a C:\Program
Files\gnubg\.gnubg directory.
