[Snort-users] Pulledpork not generating merged rules file on Windows

I finally got around to updating the online guided install for the latest
PulledPork 0.7.0, and tested. The configuration he is using works fine here.
The only difference is; I'm using drive 'D:' and he is using Drive 'C:'. It
has something to do with is folder permissions, proxy, or ????

Try changing the temp folder location to c:\windows\temp

Are you absolutely SURE the rules tarball is actually been downloaded to the
temp folder.

If you are trying multiple PP runs for testing, make SURE you clean the temp
folder before each run.

Just for clairification; In-between rule updates will PP process the
*.msg.map files, even if PP doesn't need to process any new rules tarballs? 

Best regards,

you are on windows but this says differently... perhaps it is the cause? PP
may be looking for something from that OS that doesn't exist or is named
differently in winwhatever ;)
