Not a problem Pierre. This is the right spot for a question like this...

The Geronimo server process needs write access to its install directory. I'm not much of a
Windows expert, but IIUC, recent Windows versions limit the ability of user programs to write
into the c:\program files\ directory (by default, even accounts with admin privileges don't
have permission). You need to give your account permission to write into this directory or,
of course, install geronimo in an alternate location (e.g. c:\geronimo\).
