Description Terje Bless 2002-11-23 23:31:51 UTC
Validator should support running on Win32 platforms.
Comment 1 Terje Bless 2002-11-23 23:33:45 UTC
Probably Windows 2000, XP, and .NET. NT and 9x/Me are too much of a pain to
bother with.

Preferably we should also have an easy/packaged install for Win32 systems.
Comment 2 Terje Bless 2003-05-23 12:54:22 UTC
Retarget for 1.0. OpenSP incompatibility with Windows is still not there and
there's no chance we'll run on Windows without that.
Comment 3 Bj 2004-09-08 17:28:02 UTC
In order to run on Win32 (Windows 2000 specifically) users need to

  * have OpenSP 1.5.2 installed
  * set the base path in the validator.conf
  * set the onsgmls path in the validator.conf
  * set the perl path in check

Which is pretty much what you need to do on all systems (though OpenSP 1.5preX 
or OpenSP 1.5.1 suffice on some platforms) I thus consider this fixed. If there 
are specific issues, separate bugs should be filed.
