I am testing the 2.4 Metasploit framework on XP SP2 as a platform and
have RTFM'ed the supplied doc.

The issue I have is when launching MSFWeb it fails and provides the
following message:

"+----=[ Metasploit Framework Web Interface (

ERROR: the specified cache directory is not accessible: Permission

This sounds like a cygwin permissions problem.  msfweb attempts to
create a directory (%HOME%/.msf/msfweb).  It sounds like access is
denied to the %HOME%/.msf directory for one reason or another.  Are you
using a previously existing cygwin install or are you using the one that
came packaged with Metasploit?  Also, did you install Metasploit as a
privileged or non-privileged user.  I seem to recall that having been an
issue in the past, but it may just be my memory playing tricks on me.
