Thanks Klugier for your help.
I have not done anything regarding an ini file on this, that is only when an app is initially set up and done automatically,
when a type of app is selected.

I have run into situations where a problem could not be resolved.
Just choosing an earlier version of upp sometimes got things working.

Thanks for your time and effort on this.

Neil

Trying to install upp on a new laptop with Win 10

I downloaded 11040mingw from this website and also 7zip and unzipped 11040mngw and moved the unzipped folder to c/
clicked theide.exe but it could not find the c/myapps
directory

download from sourceforg 605
It got to the page with the terms that needs to be accepted but the bottom of the page says do you accept but there is no Yes box that can be clicked, the page cannot be scrolled down further.


What is your laptop screen resolution?

Also, what exactly do you mean by "could not find c/myapps"?

Hi Klugier
Thanks for the reply.
I did have myapps directly under C: C:/myapps

Many times it has been recomended that the myapps should not be under the install directory of u++
because when upp is updated the myapps would be deleted along with all of the installed upp directory.
Or maybe I was confused on that.


I think this is the root of the issue. MyApps placement and policy was changed since we abandoned "Windows install" and went "portable" path. If there are not Windows installs, there logically are no Uninstalls that would delete MyApps. OTOH, it is now better to be able to move the whole thing at once, e.g. on flash drive.

So really the easiest way is to copy your app to MyApps in the same dir that theide.exe is.

Thanks Mirek

The computer came with the resolution of 1366 x 768
I also tried 1280 x 720 and 1024 x 768
I don't recall what it was set at when I could not scroll down.
I did change the text, etc from 100 to 125%
It has the AMD quad core CPU with the Radeon GPU.
Years ago I had an Intel 945 integrated gpu which was terrible for the
java graphics as java can't use the ogl directly, it has to use jogl (java
ogl).
I have not bought a computer with an intel cpu since then.
The upp app runs great but a little bigger since I have the text size set
at 125%.. That comes with age. I use a magnifier with my cell phone
sometimes.

could the 32 vs 64bit cause a link error?

Since I put myapps in the upp directory it finds the apps OK
