Installing PEAR via go-pear winds up splitting the installation between two drives.  It seems the installer program specifies a relative path rather than a full path.

Here's what I did.

f:cli\php -n -r "include '';"

I go along with all of the defaults.

I wind up getting two php4\pear directories.  One is c:\php4\pear, which has the full .registry directory plus three blank directories: data, docs, tests.  The second is g:\php4\pear, which contains the main files, such as Db.php, Mail.php, etc.

I suspect the installation has wound up there because my TEMP dir is on the G drive.

I've tried several incantations, but all wind up doing basically the same thing...

This definitely has to do with the TEMP and/or TMP environment variable.

I've built a new system.  Windows 2000.  PHP 4.3.1.  go-pear.php v 1.34.

The user TMP and TEMP variables are set to a directory on the D: drive.  Running go-pear.php similarly split the installation between the drive I designated and the temp drive.

To further confirm this hypothesis, I removed the user environment variables, leaving the system TMP and TEMP variables which lead to a directory on the C: drive.  Rerunning go-pear.php produced things going to the right drive.

Concetrating all PEAR@win32 install problems in #21619. Closing this one.

Considering this is a verified bug and you're consolidating the activity to a different bug report, the appropiate status is "Duplicate."
