oh, it looks like something is wrong with the slash/backslash\ handling in the
report.  Can you let me know if the last version does work for you?

wheneverpossible using the os.path module methods to concatenate, truncate or
whatever one has to do with paths makes sure it works more smoothly across
platforms. possibly one slash should be removed from the hardwritten filename
and left to be handled by the python's os.path methods, for instance current
version is:

 previewDir=os.path.join(workDir, "preview")

 ## Make sure Preview directory exists and is empty
 if not os.path.isdir(previewDir):

 iniPrevFile=os.path.join(previewDir, "Preview.ini")
 inputPrevFile=os.path.join(previewDir, "Preview.pov")
