File Issues

When installing from a compressed file, corrupted files can result from an incomplete file copy, or transmission (FTP). One symptom of corruption: the file will not unzip. Corruption can also appear when you copy unzipped installation files from Windows to Unix. These can pick up erroneous line feed characters. Solutions:

• FTP installation files from Windows to Unix

• Copy entire ZIP file

Installer Failure

When you create a CD from unzipped package:

• File names can be truncated to eight characters because of the CD’s formatting limitations.

Setup.log complains about absence of owareapps directory

• Directory name is owareapp (no “s”).

• Win_install.exe will be win_inst.exe

Solution: FTP the zipped package. Use the iso file, and mkisofs utility as the input to the CD-ROM burner.
