uDig Start menu shortcut doesn't work

Reported by: Mike Taves Owned by: moovida
Priority: major Component: Package
Version: Keywords: uDig
Cc: moovida


From my installation, uDig cannot be opened from the Start menu:

Start > OSGeo4W > uDig

... does nothing.

Inspecting the shortcut properties, I see the target is:

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\ " C:\gnu\OSGeo4W\apps\udig\udig.exe

This should be corrected to simply:


(note that the correct OSGEO4W_ROOT needs to be set here by the installer, I think)

OSGEO4W_ROOT is set in bin\udig.bat at install time by the installer.

I've looked at the shortcut install script and fixed two errors (attached):

  • the Start Menu link had the xxmklink opath and arg parameters reversed
  • Both Start Menu and Desktop links were pointing direct to the .exe instead of the .bat as you noted.
