Installation Requirements

In order to run ]project-open[ on Windows you will need:

  • A computer running one of the supported Windows versions
  • At least 1GByte RAM
  • At least 10GByte of free disk space

The current version of the Windows installer will refuse to start if it detects a number of conditions:

  • Any 32bit Windows
  • PostgreSQL - ]project-open[ includes its own PostgreSQL database which conflicts with previous installations.
  • CygWin - ]project-open[ includes its own CygWin installation which conflicts with previous installations.
  • Port 8000 is already occupied by another applications.
  • The system is installed in a sub-directory. At the moment you will have to install ]po[ in <driver letter>:\project-open.

For questions, comments or error reports please got to the Open Discussions Forum at SourceForge  and start a discussion thread AFTER you have checked the other threads for similar discussions, please.

Known Issues and Installation Notes

    You may have to start ]project-open[ manually after running the "Configuration Wizard".
    To restart ]project-open[, please go to the ]project-open[ program group and choose "Start ]project-open["

Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8:

Windows Small Business Server 2003:

Troubleshooting Windows Installations

Is AOL server running properly?

Please go to "Control Panel/Administration Tools/Services" and check if the service "AOLserver-projop" is running.
You can start it manually from the context menu (right mouse click)

Is Postgres running properly?

Please go to "Control Panel/Administration Tools/Services" and check if the service "PostgreSQL" is running.
You can start it manually from the context menu (right mouse click)

Error due to multiple install attempts?

If you installed ]po[ multiple times on your machine please make sure that the de-installing process completed successfully and that there are no components left.
Check "Control Panel/Administration Tools/Services" and make sure that the services AOLserver-projop and PostgreSQL are not listed after having de-installed ]po[.

Is there a conflict with the ports?  ­

Please check that there's no application already listening on the preconfigured port by typing

netstat -an
into your Windows console. If you find the following entry
TCP    127.0.0.1:8000         0.0.0.0:0              LISTENING
there's already an an application listening on port 8080 of your local machine. In this case adapt the config.tcl file accordingly.

Webserver does not restart automatically on older WIN2000 and XP systems

Start > Control Panel > System > Advance > Performance Settings > Data Execution Prevention and disable Data Execution Prevention or add "nsd.exe" to the exemption list.

When installing ]po[ the seco­nd time I get an Error message

In some cases a second installation of ]po[ on a WIN machine might result into the following error (or similar):
Warning: the user postgres is already present in this computer!
The installer cannot continue!

Please go to your WINDOWS user management (CONTROL PANEL/USER ACCOUNTS), delete the Postgres user and try to install again.
If there's no user 'postgres', try opening a console and execute

net user postgres /delete

If a former (de-) installation hadn't been completed, there might be still an entry in the WINDOWS registry:

                     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PostgreSQL

or on WIN 64-bit:

                     HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\PostgreSQL

that prevents the installer from running a second time. Please consult the WINDOWS documentation on how to eliminate this key.  

In some cases you also need to manually remove the local user 'postgres' from your system.
Use WIN Administration (\ManageComputer\LocalUsers&groups\users) to do so.

Windows 2008 Server SP2

Search http://msdn.microsoft.com for dotnetfx35sp1 to get additional information on how to fix this issue.
