Installation Problem - wxCrafter 1.1 plugin

Post by jwo7777777 » Wed May 15, 2013 7:53 pm

Codelite 5.1.0 on windows 7 pro

I installed Codelite without write access to registry (I meant to do this, and an answer of 'reinstall with admin privileges' is not viable)
I downloaded the wxcrafter plugin and ran it. It complained that it could not find Codelite 5.0 and asked for the plugin directory. I correctly navigated to the plugin directory and pressed OK.
The installer asked me to confirm Full/Compact/Custom, so I did. The same dialog box complained again about not finding plugin directory. I pressed Next.
-------------------
Destination location:
C:\Users\jwo7777777\Desktop\procfolder\CodeLite\plugins

Setup type:
Full installation

Selected components:
wxCrafter: The GUI RAD plugin for codelite IDE
------------------------

When I pressed Install it went ahead with trying to install in the wrong location (C:\Program Files (x86)) and not the plugin path that I entered as shown above.
I am able to install the standalone, even though the registry entries do not occur, but I cannot get the plugin installer to work. I could copy files from the standalone to the plugins directory if I knew which ones, but I don't know.

download and install the plugin (does not matter where)
copy the following files:
- wxcrafter.dll -> codelite_install_folder\plugins
- wxgui.zip -> codelite_install_folder
- wxmsw294u_ribbon_gcc_cl.dll -> codelite_install_folder
- wxcrafter.accelerators -> plugins\resources
- restart codelite

DO NOT MIX BETWEEN FILES FROM THE STANDALONE VERSION AND THE PLUGIN VERSION

I am sorry if I was not clear in my original post. The plugin installer WILL NOT install for me. No matter what other path I give it as an alternative, it insists on trying to put all the dll files into C:\Program Files (x86)\Codelite\plugins. I do not have write access to C:\Program Files (x86), so the installation fails.

Hi,

Please try the installer from the below link and let me know if it fixed your problem (this installer should respect the path you select)
Fixed installer wxCrafter 1.1

Note:
In the path selection page, select the path where you installed codelite (e.g. C:\Program Files\CodeLite and _not_ the plugins directory)
