Hi Matt,

Thanks for the advice. I created the setup.ini.bz2 but that didn't make any difference. Actually I may have made a mistake in my original command. I think it should have been:

C:\Dev\SPI\OSGeo4W>setup.exe -q -a --local-install --root C:\Dev\SPI\Test -l C:\Dev

Rather than: 

C:\Dev\SPI\OSGeo4W>setup.exe -q -a --local-install --root C:\Dev\SPI\Test -l C:\Dev

as the release folder get automatically added. This still does not fix the issue. I believe the problem is that by default no packages are selected for install. Maybe another command line option is required to install all packages or a subset of...?

Your apt programme looks pretty nice. To get it working for my local install I need to fix 195 line in apt.py from:

    localFile = file(os.path.join(downloads + url), 'rb')


    localFile = file(os.path.join(downloads, url), 'rb')
