[rt-users] MASON_SESSION_PATH - Win32

Having never installed RT on Windows, I can only guess that the Apache
installer creates an Apache user account for the Apache service and that
this account must have r/w access to particular directories in the
filesystem ( at least that's what the feedback you get seems to indicate
).  Have you checked that the MASON_SESSION_PATH is writable by the
Apache process?

how to do the same.
