Description:
------------
I can successfully install many packages, but not Auth.

From DOS:
c:\php4> pear install Auth

downloading Auth-1.2.2.tgz ...
...done: 21,992 bytes
failed to write C:\php4\pear\tests\Auth\tests\.tmpusers

The problem could be the file name.

Try pear upgrade Archive_Tar and then install Auth and see what happens.

My system:
MS Windows XP
PHP 4.3.1

What I did:
from DOS promt:
c:\php4> pear install Auth

What I wanted to happen:
install Auth package

What actually happened:
the package is not installed and I get the following error msg:

downloading Auth-1.2.2.tgz ...
...done: 21,992 bytes
failed to write C:\php4\pear\tests\Auth\tests\.tmpusers

It seems that there is a problem in writing a file with no name and only extension.
Explorer and notepad for example do not allow to create a file with no name and just extension. Other programs, such as UltraEdit can do that.

With the same method I can install other PEAR packages.
Archive_Tar is updated.

Under NT4

PEAR conf

PEAR executables directory     bin_dir         C:\php
PEAR documentation directory   doc_dir         C:\php\pear\docs
PHP extension directory        ext_dir         c:\php4
PEAR directory                 php_dir         C:\php\pear


C:\>pear install Auth
downloading Auth-1.2.2.tgz ...
...done: 21,992 bytes
install ok: Auth 1.2.2

Try a pear -vvv install Auth
This will be very verbose. Report the parts where .tmpusers appears.

The problem does not occur with php 4.3.4.

Did anybody encounter this with the latest php-versions / PEAR installer again? Otherwise we might count it as resolved imho.
