^Release 2.6 has a few niggles with windows servers which have been fixed in HEAD^

++yellow:THIS IS WORK IN PROGRESS - Having identified a tar substitute, there is still ome work to make it functional inWindows++

!!!Additional software installation notes.

*Archive decompressors as command line version available e.g. (add those you want your users to use)
**tar There are a few windows binaries of tar, but [http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/libarchive.htm|bsdtar] actually processes things the same as tar, so can be used in the same way as the Linux version.
**bzip2 and gzip are handled automatically by bsdtar
**Unzip from [http://www.info-zip.org/|http://www.info-zip.org/] ([ftp://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/pub/unix/archiving/info-zip/MSDOS/unz552x3.exe|Direct Download Link])
**Winrar from [http://www.winrar-rog.com/|http://www.winrar-rog.com/] ([http://www.rarlab.com/rar/unrarw32.exe|Direct Download Link])

#Put the contents of all your decompressor packages into a folder on the webserver, e.g. "c:\webserver\tools\archiving". Make sure e.g. unzip and unrar are in the same folder (different ones work as well but this makes it easier).
#If you have unzip.exe and unzip32.exe in the archiving package, delete unzip.exe and rename unzip32.exe to unzip.exe.
#Go to "Start-Settings-System ))Settings-System-Advanced-Environment(( ))Variables-System(( Variables" look for "PATH" and edit it. Add the folder from above "c:\webserver\tools\archiving" (without quotes) after a semicolon ";" to the existing paths. Your "PATH" variable should now look like this (or similar): "c:\programme\imagemagick-6.3.1-q8;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\Webserver\tools\archiving".
