I installed GRASS on WinXP using the setup file of the new version of 
WinGRASS from:


When starting GRASS, as long as I point to an existing GRASS GISDBASE it 
works fine. But if I try to set up a new GISDBASE, new location and 
mapset (based on epsg codes) the "location wizard" fails, popping up an 
error window (as in the attached image).

This bug is something of a show-stopper since without a properly defined 
location GRASS will not start. Even if I start GRASS with the command 
line and try to run g.proj -c or g.setproj they also fail. So without 
jumping thru some tricky hoops, editting PROJ_INFO, etc. , GRASS is 

Now, if I run the OSGeo4W installer and get 6.4.0svn, these problems do 
not appear. I can create a new GISDBASE and location, then I can 
successfully use that location to start either the OSGeo4W version or 
the WinGRASS 6.4 RC5 version.
