Just updated my CVS and rebuilt Setup and my version now shows 2.171 and I
tried a test one and noticed two things - One I believe is a definite bug and
the other I would say is up for interpretation - to me it is a bug. If it
makes a difference - I am running Win2000 and also just updated all my
1) I noticed that while running the new Windowed version (nice job Gary) that
if I clicked to any other window or several other windows that I had open I
could click back to setup (and it would come to the top) with no problem until
I got to the Chooser window. Once chooser is open, if I clicked on other
windows I could not click on setup and get it back to the top. I had to
minimize any window on top of it until it was the top window and then I could
continue with setup.
2) I always do a download from internet and then do an install from local
directory. While doing my download I was given the option to update my tiff
from version 3.5.5-3 to 3.5.6beta-2 and I selected keep the current version
(3.5.5-3) and so setup did not download the 3.5.6beta-2 as would be expected.
I checked and yes there is no 3.5.6beta-2 as there should not be. However when
I then said Install from local directory I was still presented with the option
to install the 3.5.6beta-2 version, even though it does not exist on my disk
and it was not downloaded. It would seem to me that if I am doing an install
from local directory the only package versions that I should be shown are those
for which there is actually a file on disk. If the package is installed I
should see it (for the purpose of uninstall or skip) but any other options like
sources or a version install should be based on if the actual file exists.
These are just a couple of my observations.
