As for the
If rajerrell can confirm, then we can further enhance the docs (and update also config_defaults_inc.php).
I can confirm these settings work in a Windows 10 environment:
$g_dot_tool = 'C:\Program Files\Graphviz 2.44.1\bin\dot.exe';
Graphviz is installed per the settings above and there is no graphviz folder under Mantis plugins.
