Re: setup.exe via proxy?

I've experienced the same problems when I first set up V 1.1.0.
Now, I am trying it again.
I just D/Led the binaries and am ready to decompress, but this time, using
an archiving program like Power Archiver.
And, I'm putting it on E drive.
Well gotta go. Spent long enough time on the 'Net just downloading and
reading your messages about how tough it is with setup.
Remember, John. It is experimental.
