Comment(by hellik):

 Replying to [comment:7 annakrat]:
 > The problem appears with standalone installer too. Fontcap file has the
 osgeo4w absolute path. The problem is that during installation,
 run_gmkfontcap fails and the error message (when I run it afterwards
 separately) is:
 > {{{
 > ERROR: Cannot open C:\Program Files (x86)\GRASS GIS svn/etc/fontcap for
 writing: Permission denied
 > }}}
 > Running run_gmkfontcap as administrator doesn't help.

 mmhh, it seems there is some change in file access permission control in
 win8 in comparison to win7 (already poped up in other places).

 no win8 available here on my side.

 is it possible to open the windows task manager during winGRASS
 installation to see if invoking the bat file as a child process of the
 installer fails or the access to the existing fontcap file fails?
