I'm trying to install the pbox package on my MiKTeX 2.9 installation, and failing miserably. The miktex package manager fails with the message "
Remote file not found". I got the package from http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/pbox and tried to make it, but it attempts to run
/usr/bin/install which isn't on my Windows machine.
What should I do? Is anyone else able to install pbox?

You don't need any extra binaries to install such a package. Since you have the files run tex (or latex) on
pbox.ins this will input
pbox.dtx and generate
pbox.sty which is the package file you are after. If it is in the current directory it should just work with your document.
You can latex
pbox.dtx to get the documentation if you do not already have it (the ready made pdf is already on ctan).

I just installed pbox with the miktex package manager without any problems. I used the repository at the fu berlin.
