Abiword with Registry Installer

I'm attaching my installer for Abiword. For those who aren't familiar with it. Abiword is a document editor similar to Microsoft Word.

Because of no internal refreshes, and relying completely on the hacked libX11, I'm going to call this a beta release. It's usable, but if you want to edit long documents reliably, this port may not be far enough along.

This includes the registry modifications, so that you can open the following extensions directly from the contentlister.
  • abw
  • awt
  • text
  • doc
  • dot
  • wpd
  • wp
  • odt
  • wri
  • mif
  • kwd
  • dbk
  • aw

Abiword will edit RTF as well, but because that format is included in the FBReader installer, I've decided not to overwrite that with Abiword.

This is only for software release 2.11. All other versions will need to upgrade first.

If there's an X on the docs, it didn't install correctly.

Did you unzip and run from the iLiad? Does it say that Abiword has been installed?

Do you mean from internal memory? Ive installed it from SD card.


Yes it says it has been installed and that I shall turn off and on my iLiad, what Iv done several times since then...

I uninstalled Abiword (with the uninstaller) but still there was the message: Abiword has been installed. Shut down...etc.

I had to copy Abiword fresh to the sd card, then I could install it again. But: Same problem

Hmmm
Thanks for your reply
Olivier

SD Card should work just fine.

Has anyone else had success with it?

Next page? You mean, when you try to use the pagebar in the document?

It installed ok on my CF card, but there are still problems. The flipbar (page-down) does not work, (hangs with blinking computing light). Tapping in the scroll bar (also page down) does not seem to page advance consistently. Under the view tab I was not able to select the zoom arrow. On quit, the save/cancel dialog did not come up until I forced a screen refresh.

By the way, is there a way to force a refresh without bringing up the keyboard? In most apps, clicking in the main windows does this - but not (always) with abiword.

EDIT: I recalled that clicking on the page 1 icon refreshes the screen. Using this often, I was able to select zoom but every page down via clicking in the scrollbar requires a manual screen refresh.

@Adam: Could it be, that when I tried to install previous Abiword, something got wrong?

I just tried to install it by doubleclicking and short a white window appeard (this was Abiword without registry installer).

Should I delete something in _local ?

Thanks for help.
