Windows 7 installer/testing
Make sure Morpho installs and runs on Windows 7
#2 Updated by Jing Tao almost 10 years ago
Here is the story:
During the installation on windows 7, the installer told me that it didn't have the permission to create a new folder under c:\program files if I selected it as the destination folder. I had to choose another one, e.g., the user's home folder. After I chose the home folder, the installer installed morpho successfully. And morpho was running smoothly.
I had the same experience with window vista on the previous release. I managed to figure it out. Current morpho installer can install morpho under c:\program files on Vista successfully.
I will take a look to see how to fix the issue.

In installer/build/install-windows.xml, there is element named run-privileged. It can make the installer attempt to launch itself with administrator permissions. In previous version, an attribute named condition has the value - vista. This means that it only work for vista. After removing the condition, it works with windows 7.
I tried to install and uninstall morpho on windows xp, vista and 7. It worked well. So I am closing the bug.
