Absolutely terrific software.

MobaXterm alternative: For a much more compact suite of Native Win32 port of stand-alone GNU utilities, *provided an X-Server is not required*, consider also

package download (3.36Mb):

The classic, finely honed, single-purpose Unix tools "cat | grep | head | tail ..." are all in there,
(all 118 of them), including the perennial soul-searching 'whoami' operator...;-)

Tested and found to be running fine under winXP. Recommended.

@snaphat - Perfect! Script works great! :) Thanks for taking the time to create such a script.

@freakazoid: I redesigned the scripts today to do most of the installation work automatically. It turned out there were more incompatible paths than the one you mentioned above. It should work now (I tested myself in XP).

Anyway, try the new version and follow the install instructions for Open++ on my website. It's a little different from what I posted above) (that is to say- the above instructions are wrong for XP definitely).

@snaphat - I had the same thing you wrote above.

One thing I forgot to mention is I had to modify your _Run.bat file so:

set BatchFilePath=%~dsp0

I don't believe this broke anything, but I still wasn't able to get your script working. FYI, I'm (still) on Windows XP if that helps.
