Hi Maurizio,

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

Dear 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,
