I've installed TWiki 4.05 on Windows XP with Indigoperl using RCSlite. When saving a new topic I've got the following error:

>During save of MyFirstWikiInstall an error was found by the version control system. Please notify your TWiki administrator.
>Cannot open D:/Programme/twiki/data/Main/MyFirstWikiInstall.txt,v for write: Invalid argument

Looking at the file operations with filemon from sysinternals I've found e.g. the following entries:

>perl.exe ... OPEN D:\D:\Programme\twiki\data\Main\MyFirstWikiInstall.txt,v NAME INVALID

I suppose the double D:\ is causing the error!

I imagine it is; but it's an error caused by your configuration, not the code. I use RcsLite with IndigoPerl and Windows XP almost every day, and it works just fine.

Insufficient information in this report to constitute a bug. Please follow up in Support web or on IRC.



The statement
$result[0] = "/$result[0]"
(Sandbox.pm, line 147) puts a '/' in front of 'D:' and Windows does the rest. Removing this line works for me. Is this configuration or code?


That's code, and it's very wrong. Raising priority to requirement.

Actually, it's a duplicate of Item3077, so discarding this report.
