Can it be installed over XPize 4.7?

I searched, but I couldn't find an answer to that question. ;)

You can... but it isn't recommended.

If you've got a system that's already for 4.7 on it and you want to "upgrade" sure, it should work, but isn't a tested scenario.

But there's no advantage in installing 4.7 and then 5, because 5 includes everything that was in 4.7 (and 3.2) except for the eDonkey skin.

Hello,

I searched a little, but i didn't find...can i install it silently?

Thank u for your great work :thumbup

I'll be releasing a command-line program that can do that for you.

Heya guys!!

So I've run into a problem, and W3bbo doesn't immediately know how to reproduce nor correct the issue. I'm running Windows XP Home Edition and returned results shown in these screenshots:

Has anyone experienced similar problems? Think this problem is WinXP Home specific?

Here's my install log:

Just a quick note to say I've updated the xpize website with more up-to-date information regarding x64 support and the current state of xpize 5 (i.e. XPize 4.7 is now obsolete).

Every thing is A-ok on my setup.

Only one minor glitch so far has to do with what seems to be an alpha problem on the "Log-off user" and "Turn-off computer" windows. The corners of the buttons are grey/black instead of transparent. Not sure if XPize 5 is directly responsible, but I didn't see this problem in previous versions.

What options did you select on the "Modify Package" page?

Apparently, I wasn't careful enough during install and I didn't take note that the option selected by default (MCE) was a resource bitmap package, not a visual style... Which is why I, err... selected everything :whistle:

It must have made a jolly mix-up between the four or five bitmap replacement packs. Quite brutally, I relaunched the installer and unticked everything but the MCE "style" option. Lo and behold, problem was fixed :)

Maybe the list of "styles" should be put to a separate page, along with a warning about the user having to choose only one resource bitmap pack per installation? To this end, a cycle menu would probably be more intuitive than the check buttons. Because right now, it can be a bit confusing for newcomers (and the others...).

Other than that, I love it. Congratulations for your great work!

Ups, I did make the same mistake - and that could be the reason, why I got this explorer sidebar issue...

I did install all visual styles on purpose, because I wanted to be able to switch between all these styles without using xpize again. :rolleyes:

Is there a way, to place all selected visual styles into the styles folder (resources\themes\) - but let the user choose just one of them, which will be installed?

Actually that is a little known bug with the luna royal and ms's install method.

He didn't place and rename shellstyle.dll properly.

I don't think I did anything wrong there. Can you advise me on how to correct it?

I think there is something wrong with the shellstyle.dll in the luna royale theme included in Xpize 5, causing it to change only one of the items in the sidebar. I reinstalled Xpize 5, but without the visual themes. And got the luna royale theme from deviant art. Copied it to this folder: C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes and activated it. Problem solved, all the sidebar items are blue instead of gray.

Hello,

I've got a problem installing XPize. After running installer error message shows up:

---------------------------

Anolis Installer

---------------------------

You must be running Windows XP SP3 (or later) or Windows XP x64 SP2 (or later) to install locally. You may still patch an I386 folder though.

---------------------------

OK

---------------------------

I'm using Windows XP SP3 (Polish).

Any ideas? /ignorePackageCondition doesn't help.

That's not meant to happen :)

Download this program and run it from the command-line: http://w3bbo.com/misc/ConditionTest.zip and paste the output here.

Thanks

yojo, can you confirm you're using xpize 5 Release 4? The one without the photo of the Anole lizard in it?

I ask because I (thought I) fixed the problem of it interpreting "5.1" as a decimal number regardless of culture.

Yes, for sure it's Release 4.

Okay, well in the meanwhile use the "/ignoreCondition" switch (I renamed it from "/ignorePackageCondition") and it'll let you bypass the check.

I wonder if anyone else has been having the same problem.
