I have cc-ed the users list (as John suggested).
My most recent install was to a linux version which has some differences from the native windows version. I do have a version on a windoze box but it is set up to use an apache web server rather than its own web interface, so when I look at Start/Programs/Greenstone Digital Library I see only the librarian interface and the read me file (at least I think this may be why I am seeing a different set ofoptions).
I have not used the librarian interface since my original work was on an earlier greenstone which didn't really have one; my linux work has all been from the command line and my windows version is a variant of the linux one.
I would first find the "library.exe" file and try running it from a DOS prompt (in the gsdl root directory is a setup.bat file you need to run first) -- it should give you a long text listing at the end of which is something like:
If this works I'd guess that that executable is ok; the problem would then like in your firewall or perhaps IIS environemnt; also, newer versions of windows have beefed up security features which could be preventing you from running greenstone.
When I run the librarian choice from the Start/Programs menu I get a splash screen and a dialogue box that want to know the path to the webserver; the librarian itself has (under Edit/Preferences a tab called "Connection"; my guess is that these need to be set correctly for your machine; I'll try to play with some some later and see if I can conjure it to life but tyhere be real differences between my environment (Apache 2 on Win2k) and yours.
I'd suggest reviewing the Installation manual and perhaps the FAQs for relevant topics; others on this list may have better suggestions than I, since this is really an area of greenstone that I am unfamiliar with.
Sorry I can't beof more immediate help ...
ps better to post to the list if we can and thereby benefit future users as well ... I'll post more on this if I have any success. You might consider posting another messagve which describes your web server environment and what web browser you are using; these might be relevant bits o' information for others.
Thanks for the quick response. I was able to get to greenstone, downloaded
When I click greenstone digital library, I get a pop-up saying greenstone
Then when I click the Greenstone Librarian interface mode, it opens the gli

I am very new to greenstone. I am starting a digital library. I do not know
Thanks for your help
For instance, can you get Greenstone itself to run ? What operating system ?
Is your problem in building new collections ? Or customizing the look & feel
Hello. How are you? I am very new to the greenstone software and I would
