I have tested the latest Boxi version that Achim made available.
(Thanks for the great work by the way!)

It seems that you can configure most of the files.
Only the pid, sock and state files are not realy willing so to speak.

You can point the configurtion of boxi to the pid and sock files.
This is after I have copyd them manulay from the 0.0.7 version test files.

But the state file REALY needs to be there in a fixed position.
That is C:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd\bbackup.state.
I had to create the file and directory manualy or the backup is claiming not to be configured right.

They are just simple files, why not create them on the fly when the backup starts?
I ques than it is not the responsibility of boxi anymore.
Or they could be created by boxi, all in one "working" directory.
Once you point boxi to the directory it needs it is just a simple file write command.

Just a thought.

Anyway the 11 version already looks a lot better.
