Some simple questions/comments...

I have installed the Homeseer plugin, the service mode Hub and viewer, and have been playing with some of the other xAP apps

It is not clear if there is a preferred or desired directory structure for the xAP apps, at the moment I have them in c:\xap.

Some of the apps require cygwin, I made the mistake of downloading the whole package, when all I really needed was cygwin1.dll. This is not clear in the descriptions I have seen. Again I have placed this file in c:\xap

Its probably just the difference between what a developer knows he needs and what an "end-user" actually needs to make it all work

Your advice appreciated
