    Default Hello World zimlet in windows zdesktop not working

    Hi. I have zimbra desktop running on my Windows PC and I am trying to deploy the simple Hello World zimlet as described in

    HelloWorldZimlet - Zimbra :: Wiki

    using the _dev directory method described in

    ZimletWritingTip - Zimbra :: Wiki

    So I created this xml file --

    C:\Documents and Settings\nmarin00\Local Settings\Application Data\Zimbra\zdesktop\jetty\webapps\service\zimlet\ _dev\com_zimbra_hello.xml


    <zimlet name="com_zimbra_hello" version="1.0" description="Hello World">
    <regex attrs="ig">Hello World</regex>
    <toolTip>Hello World Zimlet</toolTip>

    and restart the desktop. Nothing shows up in the zimlets dropdown in the GUI. If I send myself an email containing "Hello World" no zimlets recognize the string and display the tooltip.

    Am I doing something wrong, or does the _dev directory not work in the windows version of zdesktop?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Zimlets in Zimbra Desktop are in a rudimentary phase.

    There are a few ways to figure out what's happening:

    1) Look for a stack trace in zdesktop.out (tags that dont exist in zimbra desktop are a common problem that are logged here)
    2) Load Zimbra Desktop in Firefox and see if it works (Bugzilla Main Page)
    3) Keep loaded in firefox, and install Firebug and look for errors

    Good luck!
