[AG-TECH] WinGlobus cert problem

Failing to get AGTk running on my Linux box, I thought I'd give it a go on
Windows.  I installed the prereq pkgs (ActiveState's Python, wxPython, logging
module) and then the winGlobus.exe .  I then run the 'Windows Globus'->'Globus
Configuration' and get into the little Setup Wizard.  Here lie my
questions/problems.  It has the 4 pieces of "registry settings":
  User cert file: ...\heiland\Application Data\.globus\usercert.pem
  User key file:  ...
  Proxy cert file: ...
  Trusted cert dir: ...

I copied (manually, using psftp) my usercert.pem and userkey.pem files from my
Linux box into the above ...\.globus dir.

I then run 'Grid Proxy Init' -> Create, enter my passphrase (as I used on
Linux), and get an error:

  952:error...:proxy_local_create:Problems creating proxy
  Open failed for File=c:...\heiland\LOCALS~1\Temp

the "...heiland\Local Settings\Temp" dir does exist, but ???

Can anyone offer any clues?

(Maybe I'll return to Linux-land :)
