In a prior message I realized that I mistakenly posted the link to
2.0, when I really meant to point to 1.5.3, which is what I attempted
to install.

I've had a little more time to troubleshoot just now:

1. Add/Remove programs to clear previous install.
2. Install 1.5.3 with all defaults.
3. Same error as before "Error 3: The system cannot find the path
4. Tried to run fbserver.exe -a, which runs successfully.
5. Killed fbserver.exe process
6. Tried control panel applet to start service thru guardian.
Received error messge "Error Code 3 raised in Start Service".

Just for kicks, I then removed 1.5.3 and installed 2.0 (from the link
I previously posted). Duplicating the steps above resulted in the
same exact errors.
