Then AbiWord never even started. Do other NSIS v2 based
installers work? The AbiWord installer uses several NSIS
plugins, such as to check internet connection, etc. and
has been reported to fail on Windows 95 without IE.
If you want to test AbiWord, try running just the executable,
or for latest Stable build
If it makes it easier and you want the extra files (help, etc)
I can probably add a zip install method for AbiWord.
As for the timer issue, for testing purposes, a simple fix
of ignoring the timer callback if abi's timer object is disabled
may suffice for a more graceful failure. I will see about
adding a zip build of AbiWord with a timer workaround tommorrow
to http://abiword.pchasm.org/builds/periodic/ if anyone with
ROS installed wants to try it.
(I generally provide the Win32 builds of AbiWord)
