In this paper we show that the vector field X [inverted triangle],? h on a based path space W o ( M ) over a Riemannian manifold M defined by parallel translating a curve h in the initial tangent space T o M via an affine connection [inverted triangle] induces a solution flow which preserves the Wiener measure on the based path space W o ( M ), provided the affine connection [inverted triangle] is adjoint skew-symmetric. In the case when [inverted triangle] is a metric connection, then [inverted triangle] is adjoint skew-symmetric if and only if [inverted triangle] is torsion skew-symmetric.
