Nginx for Windows Buggy Path Setting (Kevin Worthington Port)

nginx bases the root directory into the hardcoded path

even if you don't have Cygwin installed
There is a workaround, though, to use relative directory paths:

    location / {
        root   ../www;

This will get you the root directory set to c:\www, if nginx lives in C:\nginx.
