Hi Mark,

The problem you are experiencing is because of the brackets in your file
path. Up until we tested Greenstone on a 64-bit machine - where 32-bit
programs are stored in Program Files (x86) - we had not encountered file
paths with brackets before. It turns out that the Windows scripting
language (.bat files, like what is used to run GLI on Windows) handles
brackets in a way that we did not anticipate. We are working on fixing
this issue for the 2.84 release of Greenstone, in the meantime however I
would suggest installing Greenstone into a folder without any brackets
or spaces in its path (for example, C:\Greenstone). Also, if you're
using a 64-bit machine please note that Greenstone is not yet officially
supported for 64-bit operating systems and it is possible you will
encounter other problems if this is the case.

Hope this helps,
Sam of the Greenstone Team
