I tried to install symfony according the description in the documentation. After doing the "php symfony.phar new testproject" the folder structure is corrupt. In the folder web/bundles are three files with a size of 0 Bytes (acmedemo, framework, sensiondistribution), which should be folders. I tried the download of the symfony.phar and installation of the project several times and always got this result.
I use Win8.1 and php 64 bit which is experimental, I know. Are there known issues with this combination? The installer is version 0.3.0.
The rest of the created project seems to be ok, only the web/bundles folder is broken, thats strange.
