[Ifeffit] Demeter won't start in Windows 7

The workaround of adding...
"set Path=C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem
...to the top of my dathena.bat file worked, and the software is now up 
and running once more.

Thank you so much!

This explains a lot! Even though I was editing the path as suggested, 
every time I ran Athena the batchfile was setting it back to the 
crippled one shown in the log file I sent you. I didn't realize that the 
batch files did this. Presumably this dodgy path was an artifact from 
one of my earlier attempts at installing, before I had made the 
appropriate changes.

Thanks again for helping me so fast - I was barking up the wrong tree, 
convinced that the problem was a compatibility issue with Perl.

Best wishes, and thanks again,
