That's good to know ;-) But how could I have set a different mask in my
enviroment? I don't really understand what this means, sorry.

In fact, this option was deactivated. I set it to override the
environment and reinstalled gwTeX using a Full installation, but ended 
in the same situation with broken links/wrong permissions :-(

I will first try to continue to fix everything manually to get at least 
the whole thing back to work.

Thanks for your reply

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
