I had this same issue a while back when I installed 2.0.32 on Vista, but no
one responded to the post I sent to the list.  Here is the information from
that post:

I downloaded 2.0.32 and installed it under Windows Vista using the pre-built
installer using the default location in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Zebra". When
I tried to run the oai-pmh sample on page 15 of the zebra.pdf document,
zebraidx complained about not being able to write to or lock a file. It
appears that the tmp directory under "..\Zebra\examples\oai-pmh\" was not
pre-created. No problem, I created the tmp directory and reran the index

When I went to run zebrasrv it produced:

18:11:46-06/06 [server] Adding dynamic listener on @:9999 id=0

18:11:46-06/06 [log] zebra_start 2.0.32 conf\zebra.cfg

18:11:46-06/06 [server] Starting server zebrasrv

which looks ok, however when I went to:


Vista popped up a dialog box saying that the server crashed with an
application error. Realizing that I installed an Open Source application in
"C:\Program Files (x86)\" and most Open Source applications try to write
into their install directory, which is not allowed under Windows Vista's
"C:\Program Files\" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\" directories for security
reasons, I uninstalled Zebra and reinstalled it to "D:\Zebra".

I repeated running zebraidx, zebrasrv and trying to access the server with
the same results, e.g., application error.

Has anyone else tried to install and run Zebra 2.0.32 on Windows Vista?

Thanks, Andy.
