If you can install as the user who will run athena/artemis, that
should definitely help. As Bruce suggested, the most likely problem
is that Athena/Artemis are trying to write files to a directory they
do not have permission to write to (hope the grammar police are not
reading this!). Generally, Athena and Artemis will store
intermediate data in
C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\horae
I forget if this is controlled by the environmental variable %APPDATA%
or %USERPROFILE% or %HOMEPATH%, but that shouldn't stop us -- just set
these to a directory the user can write to just before running
Athena/Artemis. For me, this batch file
SET IFEFFIT_DIR="C:\Program Files\Ifeffit\"
SET IFEFFIT_BIN="C:\Program Files\Ifeffit\bin"
REM End of Run_Artemis.bat
works to put the 'horae' files under E:\Newville.
I suspect that this could be made more robust, but that should at
least get you running.
