RE: Re: eCos Configuration Tool experimental build for Vista

Yes, I understand that now. Initially, I was approaching the tool as a
Windows user, with certain assumptions.

Part of the confusion on my part was that the configtool would give an
error when reading the ecos.db file, which gave no clue as to why it
might be failing. Perhaps a Tcl version/platform check ought to be done
in the application.
