Fixed in pear.bat changed quoting of include_path directive at the end of the file to "include_path='%VARIABLE%'" The double quotes get it through the windows shell and the single quotes are used by php. The actual line now reads. "%PHP_PEAR_PHP_BIN%" -C -d output_buffering=1 -d safe_mode=0 -d open_basedir="" -d auto_prepend_file="" -d auto_append_file="" -d variables_order=EGPCS -d register_argc_argv="On" -d "include_path='%PHP_PEAR_INSTALL_DIR%'" -f "%PHP_PEAR_INSTALL_DIR%\pearcmd.php" -- %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

This bug has been fixed in SVN. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better. Thanks a lot for the patch! Confirmed that fixed it on XP and the fix will be included in PEAR 1.9.1

Wrong line number given, correct line would be 66834.

Seeing this as well. How do we reopen a bug that's been closed already?
