The current Windows version of POV-Ray does not fully support forward slashes in pathnames; specifically, POV-Ray fails to recognize drive letters when followed by a forward slash, e.g. “C:/foo/bar.pov” or “C:/foo\bar.pov”, rejecting such names for e.g. Input_File_Name.

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  Except for an issue tracked separately as  FS#107 , no further beta tester feedback for way over a month now; I consider that good news.

Forgot to set due version; set to "3.7 beta 38" now for technical reasons, but actually it's been fixed in beta 37 already.
