Hi together,

today I did a test on win7 prof.

I changed the installation-directory for testing directories containing
spaces. No problems there!

Installation finished with any problems.

I noticed that adding TL-bin to the Path is done by the installer.

Some minor 'problems' - not concerning the 'main-TL':

Supposing our win7-user didn't install any extracting program, the
build-in is a little weak to see and to manage to extract a given
local-texmf in the right hierarchy.

To set up TeXWorks for latex-dvips-ps2pdf some extra work has to be done ...

I tested compiling two files (pdflatex and latex-dvips-ps2pdf) - stored
in a place containing spaces ;-) and also needing local sty-files:

everything works smoothly! :)

Thanks to everybody for the great affords you made to give aus TL2011!

You will find a lot of screenshots here

(The command-line-box will not be needed in the final TL-installation,
but for now the location has to be given)
