Re: New installer for Windows systems - Testers needed

Thank you for these new feedbacks.

When launching gcstar.bat, a DOS window pops up and stays visible until you close gcstar. This can be solved as described here:

This will be solved when this .zip will be packed in an installer that will also create a shortcut. This shortcut should be the same as the current one and then it won't display this window

In the book collection module, the simple "Find-function" (Ctrl+F) doesn't work. It always gives a "no items match your criteria". The advanced search and quick search in "Filter-menu" work fine.

I'll have a look to that. But I think it is not specific to the Windows version. I'll maybe need more information. I'll keep you informed through another topic that I'll link here.

I think it is specific to this new installer-version, because it works well on the same machines, using the manual install with the old exe-file. I'll give it a try on ubuntu 7.10 today.

thanks for your efforts!

edit:
installed newest version from www.getdeb.net on ubuntu 7.10 and it works, too.

Re: New installer for Windows systems - Testers needed

It took me a long time, but I created the wiki with information about the creation of the archive in this topic. There should be everything here:

http://wiki.gcstar.org/en/windows_installer

But I may forgot some steps or instructions. So do not hesitate to le me know if you have some problems trying to generate the archive.

I really hope someone will handle that as I don't think I will continue maintaining the Windows version by myself as it is too much work and I prefer focusing on free operating systems (mainly GNU/Linux) as they are the ones I use. But I can provide any required support to someone that would like to become the release manager for Windows systems.

Re: New installer for Windows systems - Testers needed

Hi,

i used this version for a long time,

but now (system reinstall) i get this message when i rund the .bat file.

Code:

D:\Programme\GCstar\bin>GCstar.bat
Subroutine import redefined at POSIX.pm line 21.
Subroutine croak redefined at POSIX.pm line 29.
Subroutine AUTOLOAD redefined at POSIX.pm line 39.

I thought an update would fix this, but it hasn't.

Re: New installer for Windows systems - Testers needed

Hello,

These problems are with the last version (1.4.2) ?

Could you please also check what is in the directory mentioned (C:\Users\float\AppData\Local\Temp\par-float\cache-621d28851f2847a11c5eefacaf6b37f93da5c69c/inc/share/logos/) and if the file splash.png is there.

This is just a small bug. I forgot to update the version number that is shown here. But it's just a problem in the display, it won't affect anything else.

Thank you for your feedback, and happy to know it works now.

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
