"The upload path does not appear to be valid"

[eluser]ellipsis[/eluser]
Hello. I'm trying to create a simple upload form by following the example in the user guide and I keep getting that horrid error. I've tried countless variations on the path ./uploads/files/ and nothing has worked so far. Just to not waste anybody's time here I'm going to answer some of the usual questions. Yes "file_uploads" is set to "on" in php.ini. I'm running XAMPP on Vista x64.
My directory structure is as follows
Quote:C:
|
|-\xampp
| |
|--\htdocs
| |
|---\site
| |
|----\backend
|----\css
|----\frontend
|----\img
|----\js
|----\system
|----\uploads
| |
|-----\files
|----\user_guide

My .htaccess contains the following lines, although it is my understanding that php ignores it so it might actually be of no relevance to the problem
Quote:RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|admin\.php|favicon\.ico|css|js|img|uploads|user_guide|robots\.txt)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]


Code:
//controllers/files.php
<?php

class Files extends Controller {

    function Files()
    {
        parent::Controller();    
        
        //$this->load->library('session');
        $this->load->model('Content_model', "", TRUE);
        $this->load->library('upload');
        $this->load->library('form_validation');
    }
        
        function do_upload()
    {
        //$upath=.$this->session->'./uploads/files/'.userdata('uid').'/';    
        $config['upload_path'] = './uploads/files/';
        $config['allowed_types'] = 'exe|zip|rar|jar|jpg|jpeg|png|gif';
        $config['max_size']    = '0';
        $config['max_width']  = '1024';
        $config['max_height']  = '768';
        
        $this->load->library('upload', $config);
        $data['page_title']="Files";
        
        $logdata['username']=$this->session->userdata('username');
        $logdata['logged_in']=$this->session->userdata('logged_in');

        {
            $this->load->vars($logdata);
            $data['form_content']=$this->load->view('loggedintop', "", TRUE);        
            //$db['query']=$this->Content_model->add_files($filefields);
        }
        else

            $db['query']=NULL;
        }
        if ( ! $this->upload->do_upload())
        {
            $error = array('error' => $this->upload->display_errors());
            
            $data['page_content']=$this->load->view('files', $error, true);
            
            $this->load->vars($data);
            $this->load->view('header');
            $this->load->view('content');
            $this->load->view('footer');
        }    
        else
        {
            $error['upload_data']= $this->upload->data();
            
            $data['page_content']=$this->load->view('files', $error, true);
            
            $this->load->vars($data);
            $this->load->view('header');
            $this->load->view('content');
            $this->load->view('footer');
        }
    }    
        
    function index()
    {
        $data['page_title']="Files";
        
        $logdata['username']=$this->session->userdata('username');
        $logdata['logged_in']=$this->session->userdata('logged_in');
        
        if($logdata['logged_in']==TRUE)
        {
            $this->load->vars($logdata);
            $data['form_content']=$this->load->view('loggedintop', "", TRUE);        
            //$db['query']=$this->Content_model->add_files($filefields);
        }
        else
        {
            $data['form_content']=$this->load->view('login_form', "", TRUE);
            $db['query']=NULL;
        }
            $error['error']="do your thing...";
            $data['page_content']=$this->load->view('files', $error, true);
            
            $this->load->vars($data);
            $this->load->view('header');
            $this->load->view('content');
            $this->load->view('footer');
    }
    

}

/* End of file files.php */
/* Location: ./frontend/controllers/files.php */
?>


Code:
//views/files.php
<?php    echo $error;
    echo form_open_multipart('files/do_upload');
    echo '<input type="file" name="userfile" size="20" />
        <input type="submit" value="upload" />
        </form>';
?>

If anyone can spot the problem or point me in the right direction, I'd be really grateful.
