Hi Dick,

Good to hear from you after all these years.

I can't say exactly what the cause is as I don't know your full dir layout.
Since the windows version of POV changes the current working directory to
that containing the scene or INI file, any relative file references will be
based on that location, not the directory that an included file is in. If
the failure is not related to this then I'll need to look into it further.
