I had great difficulties installing 1.7 on Windows XP home edition
running in VirtualBox as I described here:
But when I finally changed the Local Package Directory from I:\
(which I used VirtualBox to map to a directory on the host machine)
to I:\pkg, it worked with no problems.
This is a work around, which solves it for me, though I think it
should still be fixed.
