Have a look inside .rebol. It should look something like this: view-install-path %/some/where/ view The .rebol is a file created for most non-windows systems used to help REBOL determine when it should install (when REBOL's version tuple is greater than the one found in .rebol) and where to find REBOL. REBOL needs to be able to find itself for things like LAUNCH. REBOL_HOME environment variable usually points REBOL to where it will find the .rebol file. If you don't find a .rebol in your REBOL_HOME then REBOL will try to install. If there is no REBOL_HOME, REBOL looks in HOME. If there is no HOME, REBOL looks in the current directory. -jeff
