Windows installer doesn't work

Reported by: LonelyPixel Owned by: cbro@…
Priority: blocker Milestone:
Component: merkaartor Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When starting the Windows installer of Merkaartor 0.12, after accepting the license, a popup window opens, saying "Please wait while the installer finishes determining your disk space requirements." The only button "Return" takes me back to the license. Nothing happens any more then. The installation does not continue for no visible reason.

other problem with windows vista:

aufter startig installation it says

"Windows installation package could not be opened. verify the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid window installation package"

dont't know what to do...

I'm pretty sure the installation package is OK or some of the dozens other persons having downloaded it would have complained, already.

I'm afraid you have a system problem...

It could be really helpful if you provided an archive containing the binary files, as an option for those who have problems with the installer (or who generally dislike installers). From my experience with my own build, it is no problem to install Merkaartor in the style of "xcopy distribution" (i.e. just unpack and execute). An installer application is technically not required.

Yep, will do that.
