Subject Re: XP %HOME% and Maven

%HOME% has been known to be set to specify an alternate HOME. 
%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH% works and is equivalent to %USERPROFILE% (but this 
may be Win2k only, I'm not sure?)

Anyway, the original poster's problem was fixed in CVS yesterday.

As a workaround, you can either skip the step (Maven will download the 
libs again), or run
install_repo.bat tmprepo
move tmprepo %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\.maven\repository
