Thank you for the reply. I have been using v2.61 (self-installing
package). I will now try to do a fresh installation of the 2.62 anyways,
and will see if it will work.

Could you please point me if it is described anywhere in the
documentation: how can I install a new version of GS and/or GLI over the
existing collection with my own metadata set? It seems that if I am using
the tickboxes in the sourceforge self-install, my metadata sets are being
overwritten by the new one coming with the new installation.

Thank you

Svetlana Branhouse

Hi Svetlana,

It sounds to me like something may have gone wrong with the initial
install of Greenstone. Did you install Greenstone using the
self-installing package from SourceForge? If so, what version of
Greenstone is it?

Cheers,
John
