Thanks for testing. I think there may have been an error in the test for 
mpiexec.exe on Windows, which could make $havempi fail: can you try with 
today's snapshot? (I guess you didn't really type the extra '$' on the end 
of $havempi, did you?)

I don't think so but we may have to explore the rights question if it 
still doesn't work with the updated snapshot.
