I thought I sent you already my VBS script which tries to fix the path, or?

anyway, I've just looked a bit again into it, and fixed some more things...
although the script is certainly far away from beeing perfect - it does at least in most cases
fix the base directory in all conf files:

please give it a try, and check how it works - I expect some probs with paths containing blanks
where I forgot to quote them, but that should be fixable....

for testing its a good idea to first save your current conf directory (f.e. zip it);
then put the script into the bin directory and click it....

greets, Guenter.
