Summary: Cannot change more than 1 path during installation.

This problem still exists. Anyone has a work around?

I'm trying to properly configure PEAR on php 5.4.7 on XAMPP 1.8.1.
But if I change directories it gives error I could get past it by going
to windows Temp directory and keeping a copy of bf.vbs there and
recopying after each directory selection( ie., making sure its there for
next directory selection)

The problem hasn't been resolved until now.

But I found a solution without any patch.

Just use "all" instead of change each individual locations. It will use
command prompt.

Wish it helpful.

I just ran into this issue too - top result on Google.

I have a WAMP install - manually downloaded pear.php.net/go-pear.phar

After changing 1 path - no more can be edited.

I've also experienced this while attempting a new install today with
Windows 7. Anyone any idea why this hasn't been fixed?

I've no idea why there is so much error suppression - maybe lazy dev.

Either way, the bug is a PITA.

And I don't know how to build PEAR to allow me to test my own fix.

As a test would require user input, I think just running PEAR on Windows
attempting to change more than 1 path would prove the issue.
