I am a Rebol newbie so I can't help. All I can say is that I just today installed Rebol/View on my XP Pro without any problems at all. I removed it and re-installed it just to go through the motions again and experienced no problems. Perhaps you need to log in as administrator if you are not alllready? Hope you'll get it to work because this is great fun! Conrad Weyns.
