Installer suggestion
« on: January 07, 2007, 06:42:00 pm »

I do not know if this is possible to do with the Windows installer, but I thought I'd throw this out here anyway... if anything, maybe it will make it into a FAQ.

Downloading the content packages, I right-click the links and "save target as" and MIE starts to download the .uqm files.

Then I went to install the program.  I had all of the content files in the same location as the installer.  But the installer started to download the packages again?  What the heck?

Turns out that MIE decided to rename the .uqm files to files because it felt they should be ZIP.  The installer of course was looking for .uqm, not files. 

Might be something to check for in the installer, i.e. look for files, rename to .uqm if present, continue installing.  Or, put a "hey you idiot windows users with MIE!" disclaimer on the download page.  It's probably a windows/MIE specific issue since I don't think them there hippy opensource browsers do the random renaming thing. 

Oh, for the record, latest patched MIE 6 plus Win2K Server is the platform I'm using.

p.s. thank you all so very much for working on UQM!

Logic has been added to the Win32 installer to do the rename if necessary, so this should work in 0.6.2's installer.  If it doesn't, please let me know.
