If you plan to share data between the Linux version and a compatible Windows version, for now, you need to use FieldWorks 7.0.6 on Windows.
I want to download the latest SIL Fieldworks which Windows 7 supports.
Monali, this page always has the latest stable release of SIL FieldWorks. Sometimes we make newer beta or alpha versions available. All these releases support Windows 7, Vista and XP.
Marc, thanks for pointing that out. I must have lost one of my edits along the way somehow. I’ve corrected it now.
Just a note on the 6.0.6 FLEx demo movies. They are virtually identical to the 6.0 FLEx demo movies, differing only in the cab file date and what appear to be a few non-essential bytes, maybe from re-compiling the cab file. They work fine but do have a different MD5 sum than the cab file for 6.0. The MD5 sum listed matches the cab file for 6.0. No need to re-download if you still have the 6.0 FLEx demo movies.
I tried to install TE 6.0.6 version in a windows vista with SP2 machine.Then I received an error message that ‘icuuc40.dll file is not found’.
Please give me the instructions.
I want to download the latest SIL Fieldworks which Windows vista is compatible with..which one do I go for..Help!!
Good day. Thank you for working very hard building Fieldworks.
All currently available versions of FieldWorks will work with Vista. My suggestion is the newest version, which is available at http://fieldworks.sil.org/download/.
The linux release is getting close and there is a new beta see http://linux.lsdev.sil.org/blog/?p=70
I’m trying to install the newest stable version 7.06 BTE Full to my computer. It downloads, but when I try and install it, I get the following error message: 7-Zip: Internal error, code 104. Any suggestions for how to install it. I have 6.0.4 already on my computer, but haven’t really used it yet as I’m just now getting in to a project.
I have seen this error from multiple people. What it usually means is that the download of the file was not successful and the file trying to be installed is corrupted. You can check the MD5 hash code on the file (see Verifying Downloads) or just try downloading again. There should be no conflict between having version 6 and version 7 on the same machine.
Can we expect a Mac version of FieldWorks some time?
The Unix team has someone (part time) working on this. You can check for updates on their blog http://linux.lsdev.sil.org/blog.
