Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Win32-OpenACS
i tried to run some of the compiled .exes (aols, nsd, tclsh) on my windows XP machine "Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]", but failed. I get a message that says something like application configuration corrupt, i should reinstall.
I tried the same files on windows 2003 server with visual studio installed and it works there. Can it be that these files need visual studio installed to work? I do not have VS on windows xp.
Kind regards, peter
I've tried the system in various instances of Windows XP (even without Visual Studio 2005 installed) and everything worked fine. I did use the most updated versions of Windows XP.
Did you, by any chance, remove the "*.manifest" files?
In case you still have problems running the executables, you should consider installing on your system(s) the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) - also available from my site.
Hope this helps,
