Forum OpenACS Development: Win32-OpenACS version 1.9 with Windows Installer

Request notifications

Dear all,
I've just compiled version 1.9 (3rd of November 2008) of Win32-OpenACS: an actual native Win32 port (no Cygwin, no VMware) of OpenACS.

This new version finally comes with a proper Windows Installer (it's a present to the Community in occasion of the November OpenACS/.LRN Conference)!

This version of Win32-OpenACS consists of the following components:
1. aolserver-4.5.0 - including
1.1 nscache 1.4
1.2 nssha1
1.3 nspostgres 4.1
1.4 nsoracle 2.7
2. tcl-8.5.1
3. tk-8.5.1
4. tDom-0.8.2
5. xotcl-1.6.0
6. thread-2.6.5
7. tcllib-1.10
8. postgresql-8.3.0-2
9. openacs-5.4.3 (CVS Head of the 27/10/2008)
10. xowiki-1.0.3
11. dotlrn-2.4.1

The port can be obtained at the following URL:

Hope it helps,

Hi Maurizio, first of all thanks for providing this :).
Now.. in the list of components you mention that you included openacs-5.4.3 ( CVS HEAD of 27/10/2008 ), if you took the core packages from HEAD on that date, then you have versions 5.5.*. If your intention was to provide openacs-5.4.3 then you should take the code from the tag openacs-5-4-3-final ( the same applies for dotlrn, the way to go should be using the tag dotlrn-2-4-1-final).Now with postgresql-8.3.0-2, the current stable release (openacs-5.4.3) doesn't fully support postgresql-8.3.* (HEAD version does) in this case, postgresql-8.2.* should be provided.
