you can't change ALL the code from the newer version cause mismatch other 
file in .h
big big news!
now EINTERNAL bug is fixed!

so, this week i have no time to test it out, i only saw that venus start.
two bugs for now:
i have cygwin installed on E:, the service venus try to start it from c.
venus won't start as service (with path fixed obviously)
one thing to change to the readme of installer of codacli-a8 (i hope the 
next relase, that will come soon :)
the path of regedit (at least xp) to services is: 
and not HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Service\

we must provide coda also for people that have /dev/brain linked to 
/dev/null no?
