Firstly can I say 'thank you' for all of the work you've put into this
project. You have saved me and I imagine others countless hours of

I've never previously made any changes to config.xml. The version on my
WPKG server is from 2009 and I've checked and I didn't make any changes to
the one I downloaded at that time. I have just copied a more recent version
to my dev server but I get the same errors. I was under the impression that
if wpkg.js, hosts.xml, packages.xml and profiles.xml were all in the same
folder then all would be well.

I've always maintained a separate folder for my packages, unsurprisingly
called 'Packages', which contains individual .xml files for each package
but my hosts are in the hosts.xml file in the root directory and in the
same directory I use profiles.xml file to keep info about my profiles.

Did something change that means I now need to edit config.xml or other
