Sample Data

This release includes a new version of the Sheboygan Sample data set demonstrating features introduced in this and recent versions of MapGuide

Fusion build tools

Fusion build tools is a zip file containing the build.xml and associated build tools required to "re-compile" fusionSF.js and fusionSF-compressed.js on a production fusion installation.

Use the Fusion build tools if you have made patches and/or modifications to your fusion installation, and you need to build a new fusionSF.js and/or fusionSF-compressed.js

In order to use the Fusion build tools, you need to have Apache Ant installed.

To use the Fusion build tools, extract the zip file contents into your fusion directory and navigate to this directory in the command prompt and execute the following command:

ant compress

This will re-build fusionSF.js and fusionSF-compressed.js under fusion\lib

Due to the default installation location (under Program Files), you may need to do this under a UAC-elevated command prompt or fix the directory permissions so that normal users can create/modify files.

Windows Compatibility

IMPORTANT: MapGuide Open Source 2.6 and newer is not supported on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 in either IIS or Apache configurations. MapGuide Open Source 2.5 is the last release to support Windows XP and Windows Server 2003

Windows VistaMaybe+Maybe+
Windows 7YesYes
Windows Server 2008Yes+Yes+
Windows Server 2008 R2N/AYes
Windows 8Yes1Yes1
Windows Server 2012N/AYes1
Windows 8.1Maybe1Maybe1

+ Not tested, but similar enough to Windows 7 to theoretically work

  • IIS configuration will probably not work. Apache config should work due to its self-contained nature

1 IIS/.Net successfully tested on Windows 8 64-bit and Windows Server 2012. Windows 8 32-bit is similar enough to theoretically work. Apache config untested

Windows RT (ie. Windows 8 on ARM devices) is not a supported platform for installing MapGuide Open Source

Installer Notes

  • You cannot use the windows installer to in-place upgrade an existing MapGuide Open Source 2.6 installation, you cannot have 2.6 and 2.6.1 installed side-by-side with the windows installer and you must uninstall 2.6 before installing 2.6.1. Use the InstantSetup bundle if side-by-side installs are required. Be sure to back up any data and applications before carrying out the new installation.
  • On linux, the install path is /usr/local/mapguideopensource-2.6.1 and the FDO install path is /usr/local/fdo-3.9.0. You must uninstall 2.6 before installing 2.6.1. Be sure to back up any data and applications before carrying out the new installation.
