[ALLY] Re: Re(2) REBOL 2.5 Released - WinCE REBOL_HOME suggestion

From: mike_riley_:hotm:ail at: 3-Apr-2001 13:55

Sorry for the delay in replying, Anton. REBOL View creates registry keys during its installation on a Win32 environment. REBOL Core does not create any registry keys upon install. And unfortunately, even if REBOL View did create keys, all other platforms require the REBOL_HOME environment variable to be set via some form of shell command line parameter. Since Pocket PC offers no form of command line, I was questioning how (if at all) REBOL Technologies was able to implement this setting on this platform. Based on the lack of response from any REBOL representative (even after emailing Carl directly on the issue), I guess that they have little intention on supporting the platform other than to say "we compiled our base C code for the platform and it runs". Needless to say, the lack of any official response has left a bad impression on me about their customer support commitment. I was hoping to leverage REBOL's ease of use on WinCE but based on this experience, I have little choice but to find an alternative. Thanks anyway for your welcome attempt at helping to solve this problem. Regards, Mike
