[plt-scheme] Running File -> Install .plt File command against "PLaneT Package Repository"

Thanks for your reply !

I have just downloaded version 370, and tried to download webbot.plt from 
Planet by means of the require function:

(require (planet "[file]" ("oesterholt" "webbot.plt" 1 3)))

I have the following error reported:

open-input-file: cannot open input file: "C:\Documents and 
Settings\Administrator\Application Data\PLT 
Scheme\planet\300\370\cache\oesterholt\webbot.plt\1\3\[file]" (The system 
cannot find the file specified.; errno=2)

I don't know what [file] means, but that dir exists, and there are six .ss 
or .scm files and three subdirs (compiled, examples and html) in it.

What am I doing wrong? What should I do?

Thanks in advance !
