E-dist name of U10, why "32 bits" instead of "32 bit" ?

Author: ulrichmerkel@web.de (ulrich-merkel)

Even when you unzip the delivered "Uniface 10 Web Edition Development and Deployment - 32 bits.zip" directly to the root, the setup will run in an error situation:   --------------------------- Error --------------------------- The path of the directory in which you copied the CD or extracted the E-dist is longer than 61 characters (62); this will cause some absolute file names to become longer than 256 characters and therefore will fail to copy correctly. Rename or move the directory so that the total number of characters is less than 61 and try again. --------------------------- OK    ---------------------------   and: --------------------------- Requirements failed --------------------------- Essential requirements have failed, installation will not continue. --------------------------- OK    ---------------------------   So just renaming "32 bits" to "32 bit" will make the installation work.

  1. We apparently overstepped in our attempt to be as specific as possible w.r.t. the name of the downloadable electronic distribution. (The functional testing took place using the zip file that is produced by our factory, which is a generic non-meaningful name). Obviously the problem only occurs when you extract the zip file into a folder with the suggested default name - but, hey, why wouldn't you. We will change the name of the electronic distribution for future downloads, in the mean time we'll refer to the tip you have given here: extract the zip file into a directory with a shorter name.
