We ended up emailing directly.  His problems were related to less-than-
correct HOME, USERPROFILE, HOMEDRIVE, and/or HOMEPATH values.

When such things happen, users can either fix their profile paths, or
run PyPE with --standalone, which will force the profile path to be
the same path as the path that PyPE is running out of.

Also, the original PyPE 2.8.7 ansi upload was incomplete, which I
remedied shortly thereafter (and later replaced with PyPE 2.8.8).
