Subject: Error in start up script

Platform: WindowsNT/2000/XP
grass obtained from: Mirror of Trento site
grass binary for platform: Downloaded precompiled Binaries
GRASS Version: 6.3.cvs (2006)


When I open the spearfish sample mapset I get this error:

can't read "parts(n)": no such variable
 while executing 
"MapCanvas::zoom_new $mon $parts(n)$parts(s)$parts(e)$parts(w)$parts(nsres)$parts(ewres)"(procedure "MapCanvas::zoom_gregion" line 11)invoked from within........

When I was installing and I launched 'inst_grass.bat' I obtained an error which said something like: <Connection rejected by peer> so I downloaded the files included in the 'gnuwin32_pkgs' and 'grass_pkgs' variables one by one and unzipped them into 'c:\msys\1.0\local'. After that, I have launched the last lines of the script, modifying it so that it jumps to:

copy \inst_grass\grass.bat \msys\1.0
copy \inst_grass\grass.ico \msys\1.0
\msys\1.0\bin\grep "PATH=.*/mingw/bin" \msys\1.0\etc\profile > nul
if %errorlevel% == 1 \msys\1.0\bin\sed "s/PATH=/PATH=C:\\\\mingw\\\\bin;/" \inst_grass\grass.bat > \msys\1.0\grass.bat

I guess there is something wrong with the installation. I hope I don't have to repeat all the installation, do I? Can you help me, please?

Thank you.
Juan Carlos.
