This didn't seem to have any effect but when I ran it from a command
window, I could observe an error message so I submitted a bug report:


Is it terribly difficult to install FPC manually on Win32?  Are there
registry settings?  Or is it just getting the targets and patterns
right?  I still have my old win98 machine that ran FPC reliably...
Could I just copy the relevant directories to my XP machine?
