Either there is an issue with gnump3d - or I'm making some mistakes.
It may well be the latter :-)

Yap, that's in there. I actually found that I've been using \ instead of
/ as seperator in some of the paths - it seemed to work anyway, except
some cases (e.g. the mp3 folder root) where it didn't.

So after the first try, I just believed I've been stupid, converted all
the \ to / and already started to write an apology for bugging you - but
the problem remained.

Doesn't help.

Sure, sorry:

When exactly is gnump3d.conf.win.in evaluated?
Even after I've made the changes in there (and started gnump3d), the
respective values in gnump3d.conf.win were untouched.
I'm not sure: Is this supposed to be so?

BTW: In the file gnump3d.conf.win, the definition of index_program is
disabled with '#' by default, along with the comment that it should
normally stay untouched.

Waitaminute - May this be the issue...?

Bingo!

Uncommenting line 763 (line count from the file in the gnump3d 2.9.4 zip
package, as this file doesn't seem to be included in the CVS tree) and
setting it to the proper value does the job.

Hum, this is strange. Is gnump3d.conf.win.in actually ever used?

Anyway, thanks for initiating my problem hunting process.

If you need additional information, just quiz me until I capitulate :-)
