I have noticed with installation on my Laptop ME machine that if the Fasthenry/Fastcap programs are located under a directory with a space in its name, Fastmodel gets all confused and cannot access the underlying programs.

For instance, Fastmodel seems naturally to want to install itself under the directory: "\Program Files" but if I allow this to happen, it complains that it cannot find the program file:

\Program File\File\FastFieldSolvers\Fasthenry2\Fasthenry2.exe

and likewise for Fastcap2.exe. The problem is that it seems to have inserted an extra \File component into the path - which isn't really there.

I have got around this by installing FH from a directory without any spaces anywhere in any of the path names.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? I think it may be an issue with developing on Linux and transferring to Windows perhaps?

Looking forward to hearing from people about this.

I have had no such problem on my Windows 2000 machine.
However, I have just had fasthenry -d grids show me current flowing outside of any conductor, so I believe there are some problems!

FastModel should work also on directories with spaces in; it has been testes on Win95/98, ME, 2k, XP. Can you provide me more details? In particular, I'm a bit puzzled about

\Program File\File\FastFieldSolvers\Fasthenry2\Fasthenry2.exe

Is it really so? I was expecting \Program Files\Files
