On my Windows Vista Home Premium system I have just installed POV-Ray 3.6.1 and
POV-Ray 3.7 Beta 31 and everything works for 3.6.1, and the Demo works for 3.7.

However, when I try to render either biscuit.pov or woodbox.pov I get:

Cannot create render state output file.
Render failed

What should I check.

The renders still succeed in 3.6.

When I did the installations no errors were obvious.

Any ideas welcome.

OK, I copied the pov file out of the POV-Ray 3.6.1 scene directory, and into the
3.7 scene directory, and it works, so it was obviously a permission issue for
creating the output file.

So, I dug in and fixed my own problem.

Thanks for listening.
