Thanks for the reply, Andy.

I just noticed the fix for this was submitted 12 days ago (a couple of days 
after I had grabbed a SVN copy..) I will copy the the fixed subroutine into my 
OS.pm file tomorrow and see if I am able to capture successfully.

Subject: Re: Windows 7 Capture Issue

It looks like you're using relatively new post-2.2.1 code but not the
latest in trunk.  The problem is due to a bug that has been fixed.
The code is trying to run a command such as:
cat "blah" >> "~/currentimage.txt"

The ~ variable isn't translated properly if the path is in quotes:
"~/currentimage.txt".

Are you running a checked out copy of trunk from Subversion?  If so,
you can do an svn update to get the latest code.  If you just want to
fix this specific problem, edit OS.pm and find the create_text_file
subroutine.  Edit the $command variable to the quotes from the output
file path, change:
>> \"$file_path\"
to
>> $file_path

If you have trouble with this please send the contents of the
create_text_file subroutine.  I'm not sure exactly what your version
looks like.

After making the changes, restart vcld.  You don't have to run vcld
--setup again.  I would recommend against it or you'll wind up with
extra, useless entries in your database.  To reattempt the capture,
edit the request table in the database.  There should be an entry with
stateid = 10 (maintenance), laststateid = 16 (image).  Change stateid
to 16 and vcld should automatically reattempt the capture.
