So if I understand you correctly, you no longer suffer from #16394 (Which had the same problem but during installation)? They have the same underlying problem but if #16394 isn't happening anymore then I can focus my effort a bit more.

I had the same error in Windows 7, but was able to get it working by running the command prompt as administrator. Start -> Type in "cmd" -> right-click "cmd.exe" -> click "run as administrator" Then change to the directory of your go-pear.bat or go-pear.php, run the script and you should be good to go.

Same here, on win vista - installed pear 'locally', with php cli installed in d:\phpsomething. The installer complained that pear dir was not in my ini path, but after that running pear.bat works. Except it says pear user config file is c:\windows\pear.ini, which does not exist and cannot be written to (not running as privileged user). A pear.ini file was actually created in the dir where pear was installed, so I can run pear commands with the -c option, but it took me a while to find out. A suggestion: patch pear.bat to look if there is a pear.ini file in the pear install dir, and add it automatically to the pearcmd.php command...

add variable for environment >set PHP_PEAR_SYSCONF_DIR=C:\PHP-Addons\PEAR as example then check pear config-show.

Yurii Korotia, that helps, but it doesn't resolve the problem absolutely. All that does is, basically, make the installation no longer local. If it worked correctly I could install pear per project.
 [2012-08-26 16:51 UTC] ykorotia (Yurii Korotia)
what about adding such line to pear.cmd.php // ykorotia: // fix to include pear.ini in PEAR installation directory // as user configuration by default // NOTE! still can be overwritten by option [ -c file ] if (file_exists('pear.ini')) { $pear_user_config = 'pear.ini'; } at line 99 ?
 [2012-08-26 16:57 UTC] ykorotia (Yurii Korotia)
if (file_exists(dirname(dirname(__FILE__)). "/pear.ini")) { $pear_user_config = 'pear.ini'; } to be totally right

Set the PHP_PEAR_SYSCONF_DIR in the pear.bat file like following: IF "%PHP_PEAR_SYSCONF_DIR%"=="" SET "PHP_PEAR_SYSCONF_DIR=C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.4.3" You have to give the directory path of the pear.ini file of your system.
