Hi Matt,

Can you try installing your Greenstone in a path with
(a) no spaces and
(b) no brackets in the filepath.

That is, none of the parent directories containing your Greenstone
should have spaces or brackets in their name.
If you are administrator, perhaps you can try installing in C:\greenstone.

These two changes should no longer be necessary in future releases of
Greenstone, but they are an issue with Greenstone 2.83.

Vista seems to have introduced "()" characters into the folder name of
an important Program Files subdirectory wherein 32 bit programs (such as
Greenstone) will get installed. Greenstone 2.83 can not cope with that,
nor can it properly handle spaces in folder names, which is why you need
to specify a custom installation directory.

Hope this helps,
