Installation of ExcelImportExportPlugin fails
While trying to install ExcelImportExportPlugin
via Configuration on a windows XP system the installation stops with following error message:
Failed to move file 'bin/excel2topics' to F:\foswikibin/excel2topics: No such file or directory
Installation terminated at F:/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Configure/UIs/EXTEND.pm line 139.
Could it be that there is a slash or backslash missing in the path F:\foswiki / bin/excel2topics ?
Without the installation program my skills are not good enough to do it manually. What can i do to fix this problem?

Yes - It's a known bug. See Tasks.Item8483
Relatively simple fix to
for the change. Delete the line in red, and add the 3 lines in green.
It's actually a difference in Perl implementations - On Windows, the
function returns the directory without the trailing slash - on other platforms it includes the slash.
