Yes, this error explains the problem.  Your machine is set so that the
Windows 'temp' directory is J:\TMP, which does not exist.  This will cause
many problems with many programs.  You need to fix that (very likely you can
do this by going to the System control panel, then to Environment Variables,
and changing it there).  Once this is done, and you have a valid 'temp'
directory, you should be able to start SpamBayes (it needs the temp
directory to put the log files in).


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
