TWiki 4.2.3 Windows installer update

TWiki 4.2 for windows – with fully integrated native installers that will update your Computer with perl, apache and other tools needed to run TWiki.

The first of these installers released is the  Windows TWiki installer, and includes

  1. Apache 2.2, (apache_2.2.10-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8i.msi)
  2. ActiveState Perl (ActivePerl-
  3. Gnu Grep
  4. Gnu rcs
  5. Vanilla TWiki 4.2.3.

If the installer detects that you already have the same version (or later) of apache, perl, grep or rcs installed, it will only install the needed components. TWiki is installed into c:\Program Files\TWiki. The main change to the installer is that it now tries to detect non-English ‘Program Files’ directories and install into the right place.

Please download it, try it out and report your impressions, gripes, bugs and successes here on, or in the TWiki Bugs system.
