Thank you all for your helpful responses, it is appreciated!

It appears to be working now. My bad - I forgot that the "Workdir:" setting
is hidden down at the bottom of the cfg file, and it was still pointing to a
different place other than the final web directory where the idx.html file
resides. I guess the later setting overrides the earlier one.

Unfortunately I lost all previous data collected, somehow, probably by all
my directory and file moving & renaming & deleting, etc. Oh well...

FWIW, I found a _very minor_ bug using the latest version, having to do with
where the quotes are placed:

In my idx.html source (I've replaced less-than/greater-than with "[]"):

[META NAME="Command-Line" CONTENT="indexmaker --enumerate
--output=c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mrtg\idx.html "--title=Server/Switch
Activity" "--subtitle=(click on graph for more detail)"
--show=day --columns=2 --nolegend C:\MyFiles\mrtg-2.12.2\bin\mrtg.cfg"]

Notice where the &quote; tag is placed, before the double dashes. It needs
to be after the equals sign. Same goes for the fake CSS comment code below
the Meta tags.

Thanks again for everyone's help!
