[REBOL] Re: Rotten root

From: ingo:2b1 at: 2-Jul-2003 22:24

Hi Patrick, 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. Regards, Ingo patrick wrote:
