After experimenting a bit with Tortoise running on Windows 7 (the terms import and export seem to work in the least intuitive way and the help file lacks a really basic How to Get Started tutorial), I managed to get the latest SVN version on my laptop and created a current version which I ftp'd onto a fresh wordpress site.

 

Realised quickly that I had to name the new plugin Simple-press and the install after that went well until the Integration stage which identified that the storage location for the Custom Icons folder needed to be created. I created that manually and so far everything looks good and I couldn't find any other issues.

Next step is to try plugins and templates/themes.

I am running WP 3.2 with Atahualpa 3.67 Theme.

Cheers

SVN is a pretty mysterious beast! Took me quite a long time to get the hang of it but it is worth the pain!
I am puzzled why that one folder was not created but have not heard from anyone else that this happened and the install code looks OK. But we will watch out for it.
We'll look forward to a progress report and thanks for the current update.

At first I was trying to import but kept getting a dialog window asking for a user:password pair and that got me no-where so I thought maybe 'import' should read 'import-to central svn server' so I tried 'export' and got what I was after. I still feel odd about that.

I recall I had a similar problem with one or or more of the 4. series. Which .php file do I look at to see if I can track the problem down?

You have to look at it from the point of view of svn being the 'master' here - which it is. You are asking svn to export it's content...

All the code for that can be found in the install file:

simple-press/sp-startup/install/sp-install.php

the code for that starts around line 842.
