Same here, on win vista - installed pear 'locally', with php cli
installed in d:\phpsomething.
The installer complained that pear dir was not in my ini path, but after
that running pear.bat works.
Except it says pear user config file is c:\windows\pear.ini, which does
not exist and cannot be written to (not running as privileged user).
A pear.ini file was actually created in the dir where pear was
installed, so I can run pear commands with the -c option, but it took me
a while to find out.
A suggestion: patch pear.bat to look if there is a pear.ini file in the
pear install dir, and add it automatically to the pearcmd.php command...

I had the same error in Windows 7, but was able to get it working by
running the command prompt as administrator.

Start -> Type in "cmd" -> right-click "cmd.exe" -> click "run as
administrator"

Then change to the directory of your go-pear.bat or go-pear.php, run the
script and you should be good to go.

So if I understand you correctly, you no longer suffer from #16394
(Which had the
same problem but during installation)?

They have the same underlying problem but if #16394 isn't happening
anymore
then I can focus my effort a bit more.
