Hmm, I'm confused. You said you're using the latest snapshot of Boxi (the 
Windows binary 060925?) but you had problems with installing Box Backup? 
Did you mean on Windows, or on the server? When you ran bbackupquery, did 
you run it on Windows or on the server?

By the way, this version of Boxi is highly experimental, so don't expect 
too much from it. I know full well that it has bugs on Windows, probably 
lots of them. And the last release, 0.0.7 is so outdated as to be 
basically useless. So don't expect to use Boxi for serious work yet. It's 
just not finished. Not even close.

Cheers, Chris.
