I am having trouble using the Router Audit Tool (RAT) from CIS

Has anyone used the RAT (router audit tool) from CIS?  I am trying to use it and it seems like it's almost working.  I've run the ncat_config program to create the local.conf file.  It said it was saved at C:\CIS\RAT/etc/config/cisco-pix/local.conf.  When I try and run the RAT, I follow the directions and run C:\Temp>C:\CIS\RAT\bin\rat -r local.conf router-config.txt.  The error that I keep getting most often is "Can't open local.conf.  No such file or directory at /PerlApp/NCAT/ line 330.
I don't understand what this means.  Hopefully someone else does.

    If you saved local.conf as C:\CIS\RAT/etc/config/cisco-pix/local.conf, then you need to call rat with
      C:\CIS\RAT\bin\rat -r C:\CIS\RAT/etc/config/cisco-pix/local.conf

    Now, why the oh-so-Unix-y looking /etc/config... bit is in there is another mystery...
