Hello, it's me again trying to create an offline installer...

Now I'm having trouble with tar:
       Executing:      [tar -xzf D:\qt\release-tools\qt_4.8.4_ifw_prepared.tar.gz]
       Execution path: [D:\qt\release-tools\qt-src]
       Abort on fail:  [True]
tar (child): Cannot execute remote shell: No such file or directory
tar (child): D\:\\qt\\release-tools\\qt_4.8.4_ifw_prepared.tar.gz: Cannot open: I/O error
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now

It seems the "tar" command which is used comes from my Git installation, but it seems
it doesn't work - usual mess with (back)slashes probably. Is there a "recommended"
tar I should use? Should I install MSYS, Cygwin, or whatever?

Thanks again for your help.
