Check that all the folders in the specified path actually exist when you
get the error. Does the "collect" directory exist, and what does it
contain? (Also, it should be "C:Documents and Settings<user name>",
not "C:Documents and Settings<computer name>".)

Make sure you have read through the Troubleshooting section of the
webpage describing this functionality. Are there any exceptions from the
GLI client?
