[AG-TECH] WinGlobus cert problem

Woohoo - I'm in!  It was indeed as simple as providing the filename for the
proxy cert file (not sure why a default couldn't be supplied).

Now that I've got everyone's attention, let me continue... :)
I installed AGTk, then, after making sure I do a 'Grid Proxy Init' (and have a
valid one), I try to do *something* with the AGTk.  First, I see the menu ops
that seem relevant to me are: Node Mgr, Venue Client, Venue Mgt, and Venue

These names are not an obvious mapping from what I was trying to use on Linux:
% python AGServiceManager.py
% python AGNodeService.py

nevertheless, I run 'Venue Server' and get:
 Not starting datastore for venue: None does not exist
 Service running at https://<mymachine>:8000/VenueServer
(I assume the missing datastore is OK and proceed...)

then I try to run either 'Venue Client' or 'Venue Mgt' and give the URL for my
service, but always get the 'venue URL no valid' msg (which is how far I was
getting on Linux too).

Is there a AGTk-for-dummies writeup somewhere?  In an earlier post by Willing,
he mentioned:

can someone point me to this page?

Other advice welcome.
