0007774: Description for the Usage on Windows (All in One Package) definetely not correct
Dear team,

it was said, that you can start different Image-Files as it is the use for Smalltalk-Systems. You have to Right-Click on the image file and search in the settings for the virtual machine. Has it been tested on Windows XP? I don't believe. That does not function! Everytime Squeak comes up with a message error, calling *no content to install*.

I am an administrator which has to bring up a Windows XP desktop for a school (although preferring Linux!). On Linux there are no probs with Squeak. But on Windows the description on the website is definetely not correct IMHO (has it been *really* tested?); the configuration file shows version 4.3 as the windows title. That is not a prob, but I assume that some tests have not been done.
Squeak is not a great, but a *very* great thing. But I do not believe that these unnecessary problems support acceptance.

Does anyone know to which part of the website this refers to? This sound like it is solved with the new website and could be closed.

I don't know where this is refereed on the website, but it is still an
issue on windows if you use a all-in-one squeak distribution and
tries to open a squeak.exe with a different squeak.image or the "correct" image
from a different location
For example, copy the squeak image from

open LinuxAndWindows in a explorer and drag and drop the image file on
the squeak.exe
-> CodeLoader Error: no content t o install.

And the image that actually starts is not the one you dragged onto the vm
but the image that is defined in the squeak.ini file
