Another view:

Whilst I have no doubt that the article mentioned above addresses a real world problem (Running _only_ rconj from the local drive), there's another solution that's much, much easier:

In most cases, you'd probably want to run ConsoleOne from the local drive as well. The "installation" of C1 on the local drive is easy - simply copy the entire ConsoleOne subdir from a server to the local drive, and everything's ready to roll; this _includes_ rconj that is installed as part of C1. No special installation, no need to hunt around for updated files. Updating? Just copy the files from the server again (assuming the server has been updated, of course).

I've been doing it this way almost since the first C1/RConJ incarnation, and it works reliably for all versions.
