Re: Problems using coapp


Ah, You need to install the Windows WDK (since the native bootstrapper needs to link with msvcrt directly)


Install the WDK to the default location (make sure the top checkbox and children are selected during install)

Hi Garrett

I did exactly as you mentioned in the earlier mail. I built coapp from the source and it compiled fine. But I am getting this error http://pastebin.com/beUsf4Ck , when trying to build the devtools.

Hi Garrett and Ankit ,

I believe this is the correct link  http://coapp.org/install .

Hi Garrett,

Thanks for the reply.

The path for installer i.e. http://coapp.org/installer is not working. Please provide the working one.

Hey Ankit,

You caught me between fixing things and breaking things..

First, if you've got an broken install of CoApp, download the http://coapp.org/cleaner application, and run it, it will clean up anything we've got broken.

Second, Download and run the latest installer from http://coapp.org/installer and double click that MSI. It *should* install ... if it doesn't stop, and we'll see what I've broke :)

Third, download the devtools from http://coapp.org/devtools and run that installer. You can also open up an elevated command prompt and run;

coapp install coapp.devtools

If that doesn't work, stop, and we'll see what's broken.

As for building the code, pull updates from github-I just committed some more changes that should fix up the errors.

Then you should be able to build the code from the command line by going into the folder and typing:

ptk debug

to build the debug version of the tools.

If you're still having trouble, jump on IRC and I'll see if I can help you out; http://coapp.org/developers/irc.html

Subject: [Coapp-developers] Problems using coapp


1) I have build Coapp from source on x86 machine running Windows7. I downloaded the packages from coapp package repo<http://coapp.org/pages/packages.html>, but the package is not installing. I have tried running the msi fies directly and also using the "coapp.exe install-package path". But the coapp.exe stops working.

2) I also tried compiling devtools but it failed showing :

" Error    9    Invalid Resx file. Could not find file 'C:\Users\Ankit\project\devtools\output\any\release\bin\native-bootstrap.exe'. Line 139, position 5.    C:\Users\Ankit\project\devtools\Autopackage\Properties\Resources.resx    139    5    autopackage"

 then i commented ( Line 136 to 142 \devtools\autopackage\Properties\Resources.resx)  the error lines and compiled again and it succeeded. But the tool was not working properly, it was showing some bootstrap related error. So what should be done to avoid this error ?

Looking forward for your reply :)
