Well, I still have that problem. The GUI doesn't load on my PC: Windows 8.1 x64

gonza on 2015-12-20 23:44

Quick correction: I was using the x86 version, because I want compatibility. It seems like the 86-bit version is not updated. Halite.exe still is v0.4.3

Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).

@billon

Thanks for your quietly updating Tixati's main entry, following the above agitation...;-)

  • "Uncompressed size": revised total footprint of relevant Win PE binaries
  • "How-to-extract": added pertinent advice to discard irrelevant Unix binaries

@smaragdus
(Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).)

Quite so, strictly speaking...

BUT...

Currently, the "Uncompressed size" field is formally defined in the entry form as:
   "Total size of application files when fully unarchived/uncompressed".

We don't really want to open a whole 'nother can of worms about what exactly ought to be the appropriate scope of the "uncompressed size" field definition, with implication for every current entry in the Data Base, do we ?

One feature I'd really like to see in this one is a blocklist of somekind...

Zays on 2009-08-08 23:42

This software is not portable: all paths are absolute and have to be normalized. Moreover the resume is not supported moving the program. Maybe is better to signal the portable version of winpenpack developers (it works) http://www.winpenpack.com/main/download.php?view.1253
