When I install a new version have I to deinstall the previous version first or can I run the installer over the previous version?

You can choose.

In ALL cases first make a backup! (the easiest is to make a full copy of your entire servoy directory)

To upgrade your existing installation just perform an over-install.

Alternatively you can install into a fresh directory and start with a clean install.

Where are we supposed to report bugs? RC5 launches and quits fine on my iBook but it won't quit on my Cube. The solution window closes, but it stays running. Most menus respond to clicks but do nothing. I have to force quit, though the dock menu does not show application not responding.

I was having the same problem! I did an update. I have send the repository to Jaleman, but he couldn't reproduce it.
After that I did a clean install, imported my solution, and everything was working oke!

Developer seems to work fine, but the client is very slooooow, when my solution eventually comes, the client seems not to redraw the screen and does nothing. [Mac OS X 10.2.6, latest Java]

RC2.1 was working much better.
Time to reinstall my Servoy backup!

What do you mean with RC2.1?

Did RC4 not have these problems? and RC5 does?
that is very strange because there weren't any changes on that part as far is i can see now.

But can you test this:

this is also a RC5 install. Do you also have those problems there?

Error: Function keyword found in this script

Postby mattman » Sat Oct 11, 2003 8:04 am

I'm getting an error dialog box after moving to 1.2RC5 that says "function keyword found in this script"

I also experienced some weird changes when it updated the repository. All of a sudden the wrong solution opened under the wrong name. For example, the buttons soultion opened up my own solution and not buttons.

The reserved word list in Servoy is being updated continuosly. The word function is a reserved JavaScript word and should not be used in Servoy methods. The solution is to remove the word.

Is the opening wrong solution error a reproduceable problem? On which operating system? Which java version?
