Good evening,

It also means that the current and only available win32 binary doesn't work.

Invalid_argument("Filename.temp_file: temp dir nonexistent or full")

What I don't understand is that directory %TEMP% and c:\Temp both exist
and there is about 5GB of free space on this disk. The value of %TEMP%


c:\Document and settings\mentre\Local Settings\Temp

[lengthy talk edited after I noticed the real error]
Again, having C:\Dev\Cygwin available somehow made up for what the client was looking. Renaming this folder made the same problem occur.

Any idea?

Well, I guess it really has some trouble. I've uploaded a strace log:
It has some problems, but it seems to get the TEMP path right in the end.
string demexp-lablgtk2-client doesn't show anything related to the faulty path, "C:\Dev\cygwin\tmp", which is a bad translation of /tmp

Ok, so I'll put your scripts and doc as-is in a win32 directory in the
source tree. The "official" win32 developer of demexp will improve
it. We just need to find the official win32 developer. :)

"Will code for beer". :)

Can you send the example of nsis file you have. I would like to see how
l10n is handled.

See for the original installer script and additional files. Many projects on sourceforge also include such scripts, so you may find even more "litterature".

Best regards,
