Michael:

I've downloaded version 2.41 in my Windows XP machine, a P4 computer with
504 MB RAM and 40 GB HD. The comoyter has version 2.40 installed and working
properly.

When I try to run the Windows Installer for the version 2.41 the following
message appears:

Internal error 2254, feature

... and the installation process got interrupted.

¿It is necessary to uninstall previous versions of Greenstone?

Thanks.

> Hello everyone,
>
> We're pleased to announce the release of new Linux/Windows/Source
> distributions of Greenstone (version 2.41). These are available for
> download now from our sourceforge page
> (http://sourceforge.net/projects/greenstone). From tomorrow there will

>
> This release features many improvements to the core Greenstone software,
> including support for displaying all the values assigned to one metadata
> element, a plugin for processing CDS/ISIS databases, improvements to the
> DateList classifier, the ability to export multiple collections to
> CD-ROM, and many other bug fixes and minor improvements.
>
> The bulk of the changes for this release, however, are improvements to
> the Librarian Interface tool. The Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI)
> is an easy-to-use frontend to Greenstone's collection-building
> functionality. It provides a graphical, point-and-click interface that
> allows you to gather files for your digital library collection, assign
> metadata to them, and then design, customize and build your collection.
> The Librarian Interface comes as standard in all distributions
> (uncompiled in the source distribution, compiled in all the others). It
> is installed in a subdirectory of your Greenstone installation called
> "gli", and requires a recent version of Java to run (you will be told if
> you don't have this, and it is a free download).
>
> If you haven't already tried the Librarian Interface, now is a great
> time to do so. On Windows, a shortcut to the Librarian Interface is
> automatically added to the Greenstone Digital Library item on the Start
> Menu. On other systems, the Librarian Interface can be run by executing
> the gli.sh script in the "gli" subdirectory of your Greenstone
> installation.
>
> If you tried a previous version of the Librarian Interface but ran into
> problems, please give this new version a try. The Librarian Interface
> has been through a lot of user testing since the last release and has
> been under constant development, and this version is a large improvement
