[REBOL] Re: Rebol/view as a CGI app

No, that's now what I have done. The command line I quoted works;
#!C:\Rebol\rebolcmd.exe --cgi -s
This really IS Rebol/Command. The above also works if I use just plain
rebol.exe, IE Rebol/Core.
What does NOT work is if I do ANYTHING like the following;
#!C:\Rebol\view\rebol.exe --cgi -s
This just doesn't work. It hangs. Doesn't matter what switches I use
either, I've tried dozens of combinations. I can run the exact path
and my Rebol/View just goes straight into the console and doesn't try
to install itself with the nasty pop up GUI thing.

They all work, I'm not a complete fool. :)

I didn't know about the REBOL_HOME var actually. Not that it appears
to matter much. I have Rebol/view (pro) registered in the system to
execute scripts without security etc. It works well.
AM> I hope that helps! If not, please let me know, or email the list?
The only solution I can think of is to work out what the hell is
happening with Rebol/View when I'm calling it.
