how to install voyager, notes on windows 7 compatibility
Easiest way to get voyager working:
1) put the newest voyager installer from \\uwlaw0\install on a usb drive
2) go to their library desktop and copy the entire c:\voyager folder to the same usb drive
3) on their laptop rename c:\voyager to c:\voyager_old (if there is already an old, delete it)
4) run the voyager installer (may want to do custom install so you can install everything), this will correctly install any new dlls that windows needs
5) rename the "new" c:\voyager to c:\voyager_bad
6) copy from usb drive the "voyager" folder from their hard drive to c:\
These steps will 1) link / install all the dlls 2) use their exact settings from their (working) desktop machine.
REM Make a backup copy of Voyager files and run silent install
xcopy /s /i "C:\Voyager" "C:\Voyager.bak.%MyNewFileName%"
msiexec /passive /i \\lib5344-kenc1\C$\temp\VoyagerInstall.msi ADDLOCAL="Callslip,Reporter,Cataloging,Circulation,Acquisitions,System,Configs"
REM Old install
REM \\lib5344-kenc1\C$\temp\VoyagerInstall.exe /quiet
echo "Voyager install complete"
\\lib5344-kenc1\C$\temp\MARC21 Repertoire.cfg C:\Voyager\Catalog\MARC21 Repertoire.cfg
I'll just add... The "unexpected error, quitting" can also be resolved by running "catalog.exe" and "aquisistions.exe" as administrator the first time. After that, they work as normal.
From an email sent to the voyager-l list.
Here's a brief summary of my testing: When installing software, I always launched the installation programs by using Windows 7's "Run As Administrator" context menu choice. Voyager staff clients: When I launched Cataloging and Acquisitions, I got "Unexpected Error, Quitting." To fix that, I right clicked on the program "catalog.exe" and selected "Troubleshoot compatibility", "Try recommended settings", "Use WinXP SP2 compatibility mode", and "Save settings." I followed the same steps for "acquisitions.exe".
