But what is the express-install??
- /express installs XPize using the Express installation type (Restore Point disabled by default)

Run XPize normally and in components page look at the installations types (full, express, lite)

I am proud to announce that you already downloaded XPize over 70.000 times and i can still count around 1000 downloads per day! Therefor i decided to release the final version of XPize 4.2 soon.

**** XPero :realmad: where is my Icon?

:P just kidding... hope it will be included on the next release

The new version works great, the new php-icons look nice, quicktime-icons also worked great for me, too. :thumbup . I hope the many improvments to the installer will help to abolish several incompatibility problems.


Best regards from Germany,
