#812 closed defect (fixed)

New installer only does partial install

Reported by: JonBall Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: critical Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: Installation Version: svn-releasebranch64
Keywords: Installation Cc:
CPU: x86-64 Platform: MSWindows Vista

Description

Platform: other grass obtained from: Trento Italy site grass binary for platform: Downloaded precompiled Binaries GRASS Version: r39740-1

After having had problems with the previous version of GRASS I tried the new installer (uploaded last night). This is even worse as it does not install key directories including bin, etc and others. Clicking any of the start-up icons results in only a very brief flash of a window on the screen.
