Some problems were known during installation of the initial Bitrate
Viewer 1.0 which should no longer exist in current releases. Unless
otherwise noted there is no full ZIP version of Bitrate Viewer for 1.0.3
and above. So just for explanation of the files you can download on the
Bitrate Viewer homepage:
Please use a normal left click with your mouse to download any of those
files. Save the files to your local disk at any appropriate location.
When you're done, execute the selected file with a double click. Don't
execute the downloaded file immediately out of your browsers download
status window. In many cases you will receive errors caused by the
Windows internal security checker ... especially when you're using
Windows Vista or Windows XP SP3 in combination with MS Internet
- The BitrateViewerSetup.exe is a complete packed installer
that contains the application and all shared system DLL's needed. It also
has CRC checking enabled so that you can see if your file downloaded is
corrupt. The mechanism used within the installer which is created with
HM NIS Edit 2.0.3 (a NSIS script installation builder) may not run with
Windows Vista ... it is not yet known if installation problems on Vista
are caused by the installer itself.
- If 1.) fails for any reason you can try as an alternative to download
the other two ZIP files BitrateViewer-1.0.zip and
BR-syslibs.zip, save them to local disk and unpack the first
one into your application directory (which defaults to
"C:\Program Files" if you have English language
settings in your OS) and you'll get a
"C:\Program Files\BitrateViewer" directory
afterwards. Then you unpack the second ZIP file into your Windows system
directory (which defaults to "C:\WINDOWS\system32").
For Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 that is all, you're done with
this. For Windows Vista: I don't know if the last step will also work here
because Vista uses a different system library storage. Normally it should
work because Bitrate Viewer is build with the first release compiler for
Microsoft .NET Framework of 2002 Service Pack 1. This one doesn't require
specific procedures on system library storage.
- If you are going with step 2.) you can skip downloading and installing
the BR-syslibs.zip if and only if the files contained in there
are already installed on your system. Now these files are the following
redistributable MS DLL files (English-USA):
|If you have newer version they won't get overwritten. If you don't
have them, no problem, they will get installed for the first time.
If yours are older they'll get overwritten. In this case it could be
a problem if your DLL versions were *NOT* English-USA.
Please post any more problems with the installation of Bitrate Viewer
