please help me a bit with LuaDist. I think I get stuck in the docs; I did the following (in 32bits Win7):

 1) install MinGW:
    - download latest mingw-get-inst- .. exe file
    - execute that file (this installs "c:\mingw" on the system

 2) download LuaDist package:
    - unzip the package to:
      this results in the following subdirectories created in there:

 3) I open a command prompt and:
    - cd to "C:\LuaDist-batteries-0.9.1-Windows-mingw32\"

 4) Building LuaDist can now be started using the build.bat script:
       ===> error: build.bat not found
       ===> also for the next step "bootstrap.bat" is missing

What am I doing wrong?

LuaForWindows updates will slowly be discontinued (see list archives for reasons and details). Currently the LuaDist project aims to take its place with the Batteries[2] package. Binary downloads are also available here [3]. However the 1.0 LuaDist Batteries release will still use Lua 5.1.5. Moving to Lua 5.2 will still take some time as many of the modules are not compatible.
