Subject Re: [VOTE] Release InstallApacheFlex 1.0 - RC7
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 13:06:35 GMT
I gave this a spin and here is some feedback:

- the application did not install and I got an error saying that the
installer was probably misconfigured. It turned out that I did not
uninstall a previous version of the application. After doing so, the
application did install. Will this be the case for every upgrade?

- the Dutch version is missing translations (the selected directory is not
empty, the installer will download software..., I agree to all options...,
Required, I agree, install, the small license texts, copy log, Install log,
Downloading ... from ..., verifying, open apache flex folder). I did not
check other languages.

- buttons don't scale when translations are too long (in Dutch: install...)

- Layout: in general the layout is not similar to most other installers.
The logo is very dominant. The main content looks like a panel or popup
window that can be moved, probably removing the shadow would fix this. The
(red) checkboxes next to the licenses invite you to click them. It would
probably be better to have bullets there or so and change to a green tick
(without the square) when OK.

- log window: the window is resizable and has the logo in the background.
This is visible when you resize the window. Not sure if the logo should be
there; a grey background is probably good to fill the bottom bar. The log
entries are now in a List; perhaps this should just be a text area so you
can directly select (parts of) the text.

- while installing, the title of the panel changed to "Aborting
installation", but everything installed correctly. Could not reproduce on
second run.

PS: sorry for being inactive lately, but work is keeping me from actively
