Okay ... what am I doing wrong?

I have downloaded Sigil ... but when it's done installing ... I get one of those icon-less window things and when I double click on it, Windows XP tells me that it isn't a valid Win32 application.

I have downloaded 3 different sigil installers and know that I am simply missing something basic.

I checked the manual and it only mentions an "application configuration is incorrect" message.

So ... can someone please help me?

Thanks

Mary

Since you have a 32 bit machine, download this file, not this file. You want the one without the "x86_64" part in its name.

There's a very specific reason why the 32 bit version of the Sigil installer doesn't have "x86" in its name (which it should), but the Linux 32 bit version does: the reason is that someone who doesn't know what "x86_64" means will just pick the "plain" filename.

Linux people OTOH are expected to know the difference (if they don't, what on God's green earth are they doing running Linux?).
