"cannot find the path specified" when setting up replication

When trying to setup relplication for SQL i am getting the following
error.
"The system cannot find the path specified"

The problem is when trying to run: sp_adddistributiondb
line 434: RAISERROR (14113, 16, -1, @osql_cmd, 'instdist.out')

The details...
MSDE2 SP3

writeable

Free space on c:\ is 4.06 GB
Free on d:\ is 50+ and h: is 70+

Am able to write/read from registry

I have found SOME information (below), but im just not sure what it
does and if it will help.
