The cause of this problem is improperly uninstalling the exported collections: some information may be left over in the Windows Registry.
 
The resolution to this problem is to remove the information from the Windows Registry.
  • Go into REGEDIT (START, RUN, REGEDIT)
  • Look for everything that refers to c:gsdl and delete it.
Be careful, because you don't want to damage existing programs. But this is the only way to get back to a clean envirionment so you can do the install properly. And then be sure that you always UNINSTALL and not just delete folders :-)

Subject: [greenstone-users] Export Collection

I have two collections that I want to export to CD-ROM. When I use the Export Collection utility,
  • The first collection exports correctly. Using its setup.exe, it exports the greenstone software to C:GSDL and then offers to export the collection under that.
  • The second collection also seems to export correctly. However, using its setup.exe, it does not try to export the greenstone software. Instead, it immediately goes to the second dialog box, asking about installing the collection. And it wants to put that collection in a folder called C:GSDL_TEST.
This happens whether or not I have the first collection installed.
 
I am running Greenstone 2.39 (Local Server version) on a Windows XP Professional computer.
 
Any clues?
