But MhonArc will write to screen - you need to allow interaktive to desktop.

You can use the -quiet option to suppress progress output.  Only
warnings and errors will be printed.  For Win32 systems, you can use
the -stdout and -stderr options to have output go to files if using
a shell that does not support I/O redirection (which is generally
the case under Win32).

Desktop interaction is not required.  Many run mhonarc via automated
processes like cron, and I believe some users automatically invoke
it under win32.

Dos the user ( normaly system accont ) have access to write ?

Mhonarc should not be executed under root, or other admin, account,
if possible.  It opens you up to local security attacks (at least
under Unix-type systems).  Use a regular user account to run mhonarc,
if possible.

BTW, Win32 users may want to look into Cygwin, <>.
It provides a Unix-type environment with many of the standard Unix
like tools.
