Sorry about the double post, my mail decided to freak out a little tonight:

Good evening!

I hope I'm doing this right but here goes!

As per request from the wiki 
(http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Windows_Port)  I'm mailing this 
list upon a nice little error from the installer script.

Error reads:

Can anyone help me with this?

Kind regards,


ps. This wrangling with windows almost makes me wish to retry installing 
my serial touchscreen lcd on linux again... ;)
