Unable to install on Windows 8

Reported by: martin@remote.net Owned by: alamaison
Priority: minor (e.g. uncommon, cosmetic, has workaround) Milestone: 0.6.x Bug sprint
Component: installer Version:
Keywords: Cc:

Description

I know it is not a released operating system yet, however I'm running the Developer Preview of Windows 8 and would like the opportunity to test drive Swish on it. When attempting to install I get the error message:

Unsupported operating system, major=6, version=2.2, sp=0.0, type=1

  • Milestone set to 0.6.1 Bug sprint

That's annoying. This is probably code from the installer bootstrapper (not really part of Swish). Have you tried the standalone MSI installers from:  http://sourceforge.net/projects/swish/files/swish/swish-0.6.0/ You probably need  the x64 one.

Using the *.msi worked like a charm. Thanks again for the awesome software! Keep up the terrific work. :)

  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Resolution invalid deleted

Reopening because this is still a bug we have to fix eventually, even if only in the bootstrapper.

The  latest release (v0.6.1) uses dotNetInstaller v2 which works with Windows 8.
