Can't Install ZD 2.0.1 on XP Media Center SP3
OK - I'm toast on this -
I FOOLISHLY exported and then uninstalled ZD 1.0.4 because I needed IMAP support for Exchange on one client account. ENOUGH SAID ABOUT MY BAD
I did, of course export everything - thanks to God.
I ran the ZD uninstall 1st, and told it to delete data.
Downloaded the 2.0.1 MSI installer and had a go at it...
The setup runs, and does the basic code install but it never configures and launches the Desktop. If you have checked the Run Zinbra Desktop now box - you would expect the configuration script to run, I guess ???
nope - just a flash of a command window then nothing.
I have narrowed down the issue a bit -
Instead of getting a Zimbra folder in c:\Documents and Settings\%user%\Local Settings\Application Data, I got two "stubs" - one named 'VMware\Zimbra Desktop" and a second (probably from my second installation effort) 'VMware Inc\Zimbra Desktop".
both are empty - no configuration data (as I checked against an XP Pro machine I installed on which seemed to configure OK.
XP Media Center 2002 SP3
I'd guess at an OS version check that did not work properly, and choked. :eek:
BUT - I am stuck, and that's the machine I need to use with Zimbra at work.
I'll stick with my boo hiss
I did re-install, but it may be the last time for Zimbra
"could be" - now that's a really good employee response... :eek:
Is there a list somewhere of supported Windows OS versions?
There aren't that many XP variants that the install should not have been tested against them at least in the primary language. How long could it take?
"sloppy test engineering"
Just my opinion.
thanks - I'll give it a go
Thanks for that info - I'm going to give it a go after I finish the critical stuff. I would like to try out the 2.0 version, as I'd like to see the 'all boxes' features. BUT - the ugly side of Zimbra (moving things) means I have to do so on non-critical stations. After I made the first post, and read your reply, I looked on more stations and saw that Zimbra 'leaves' stuff' in many places... Still, its a remarkable piece of software (at least the 1.04 version is). It has been plagued by never being the focus of a true corporate effort Yahoo squandered their money and effort ineffectively - a bloody shame given their e-mail marketshare. MAYBE VMware will do better (ummm unlikely - think SUSE - another bloody shame). Why do I always love the wallflowers???? :D

Too many Windows variants?
Well, only speaking for myself - if "I" were to engineer a universal e-mail client and promote it as part of a global company, I would:
A. - Have/Keep a definitive list of tested OK client OS's and variants posted in the FAQs.
B. - When 'getting to the above list', I likely would have used some common sense. i.e - Win7, Vista, XP all major variants, and perhaps the W2K3 and W2K8 servers.
C. - and Linux Unix don't have too many variants??? Jeez - at least with Windows you have a chance of knowing where the OS components are on any given day without a secret decoder ring LOL. (I do *nix work as well, so I'm not a OS bigot, just a realist.)
In the current environment of 'dialing up a correctly provisioned VM' for testing by clicking a 'start container' icon, its kinda hard to say "its OK to skip testing, as its too much work to maintain all those environments."
just my thoughts, what would I know really...
