[REBOL] Re: Rotten root
From: ingo:2b1 at: 2-Jul-2003 22:24
I guess this is caused by the missing installation "feature". Somehow
Rebol/View checks its installation info for view-root, and not the path
where it is really located. IIRC Carl once explained this to be a
security feature, because it's not possible to put a compromised rebol
version into your path before the official version.
That said, I guess you'll have to wait for the next release, or revert
to the last.
