Re: Announcing an installer for Zim on Windows


You can be the one to test it!

It should be portable. The entire application installs to "C:\Program
Files\Zim Desktop Wiki" by default. The launch script is start-zim.cmd, in
that folder. The launcher detects where it is run from and configures the
environment variables accordingly, then invokes Perl to invoke Zim.

The launcher assumes that %USERPROFILE%/My Documents and
%USERPROFILE%/.config are creatable/writable. The app will probably fail if
this is not true.

Copy that folder to a portable device and try it on another computer and let
me know how it goes.
