Installation of ExcelImportExportPlugin fails

While trying to install ExcelImportExportPlugin via Configuration on a windows XP system the installation stops with following error message:


Error: Failed to move file 'bin/excel2topics' to F:\foswikibin/excel2topics: No such file or directory

Software error:

Installation terminated at F:/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Configure/UIs/ 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 lib/Foswiki/Configure/ See 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 File::Spec function returns the directory without the trailing slash - on other platforms it includes the slash.
