[REBOL] Installation Help

From: philb:upnaway at: 29-Sep-2003 22:19

Hi, Which version of Rebol are you setting up. 1.2.8 sohuld go in smoothly. 1.2.10 does not need an instal (but has a few things that are not set .... view desktop doesnt function, the browser path isnt set .... but sound is enabled). Are you installing into the same directory that the executable is in? If so dont, create a temporary directory, run the executable from there to create the installed version of View. As I remeber I didnt have any problems getting 1.2.8 going when I installed XP a few months ago .... If you are still having problems get back to this list .... there are lots of helpfull people here. Cheers Phil === Original Message === Hello, I'm trying to install Rebol/View for windows XP and I'm having a bit of difficulty understanding how the program works. Essentially I accept the license agreement but when prompt for an installation directory, no matter what value I put in there I get the error: ** Access Error: Bad file path: Install/ ** Where: copy-exe ** Near: rebol-exe-path: join form home-dir: to-local-file ** Press enter to quit... It manages to create an actual directory Install, along with a subfolder public, but that's about as far as it goes. If instead of clicking install I click on the window terminate button, it continues along with the installation and brings me to the user properties. After that though it goes to install in HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%/ but returns an error. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I spent quite a bit of time setting this up with little to no luck. Can anyone help?
