vrf Easy availability of VEE Runtimes

Question asked by VRFuser on May 19, 2004
Hi Scott and Nicole,

The new link is very much appreciated! Thanks for getting that implemented. Now
if there was only something you could do about the size of the 71.5MB download!
(I know. It's the penalty we pay for including MATLAB and .NET in VEE. Oh well.)

On a different note, when I tried to install the VEE 7 eval, I ran into a script
error right after clicking on the "Install Agilent VEE Pro Development" button
on the first information screen. I managed to trace it down though. I had placed
the downloaded installation package in the "G:InstallAgilent & HP stuffVEE 7
[eval]" folder and that ended up being the culprit. When I changed the '&' in
the path to 'and', the error went away. Just thought I would point that out,
since the ampersand IS a legal character for a long file or directory name.

Subject: [vrf] Easy availability of VEE Runtimes

Hello vrf-ers,

Some months ago a number of vrf-ers requested an easier way for your end-users
to get access to the VEE Runtime installers via the web. At that time the
runtimes were available only through the ADN, requiring a registration and
login, then following some links for your end-user to get the installer. You
wanted it to be easier for them.

We were listening.

Nic and the ADN Webmaster went to work and put together a page of easy runtime
downloads for:

VEE 7.0
VEE 6.2
VEE 6.1
VEE 6.01
VEE 5.01

You should send your end-users who need to install VEE Runtimes to < >, where they will be able to get any of these
runtime downloads very simply and easily. There are readme files there as well,
with short instructions on downloading and installing.

Note that some of the runtimes have different unzip/installation instructions
because they come from different eras. 7.0 is far and away the easiest (a single
file when unzip-ped), but for some of the older ones it may be worthwhile for
you or your end-users to read the readmes.

If your users select any of the other links on that page they may be required to
register or log in to ADN, but for the runtime downloads and readmes there's no
such requirement.

Best Regards,

Scott Bayes (for Nic)
