This is pretty bizarre, the webserver shouldn't make a difference.
The only thing I can think of is that the 2 webservers might handle
things like spaces differently (eg, IIS might convert any space
characters into "%20"). Were there spaces in your filenames?
I guess the default location "C:\Program Files\gsdl" has a space in
it too.
