Update March 2014

I LOVE TeamStudio configurator – always have, probably always will

For some reason though (probably permissions or firewall related) I am unable to do the installation via Drag and drop from the website. I drag and drop it – and nothing happens…

Add Configurator 29 Problem

So I figured out a work around and here’s how I did it – might not work for everyone but it might. This also provides an interesting insight into the process and how everything is interwoven in this process.

Right clicking on the Configurator icon and copying the link address gives me this

http://ftp.teamstudio.com/Edition29/en/update/widgets/extension_configurator.xml

Looking at the file I find the ftp root for the 29 update

http://ftp.teamstudio.com/Edition29/en/update

Going there I found the site.xml and that is the one I was looking for

http://ftp.teamstudio.com/Edition29/en/update/site.xml

In the Notes Client

Select Features and Plugins and hit Next

Add Configurator 29 Step1

Enter the site.xml URL and hit Load

Add Configurator 29 Step2
Add Configurator 29 Step 2

Select Configurator and hit Next – You will see it start to download

Add Configurator 29 Step3
Add Configurator 29 Step 3

Once it is complete

Add Configurator 29 Step4
Add Configurator 29 Step 4

Next

Add Configurator 29 Step5
Add Configurator 29 Step 5

Next

Add Configurator 29 Step6
Add Configurator 29 Step 6

Finish

Add Configurator 29 Step7
Add Configurator 29 Step 7

Restart and we’re done

I am assuming it is the same steps for any of the other products which appear in the site listing but I have not yet tried them.

  1. I’m sorry you had to jump through so many hoops to install Configurator. Although it was never our intention, the widgets can indeed be difficult to install and have caused frustration for some of our customers. You have come up with a great workaround, here – one that we had not been aware of! Thanks for the post, and for sharing your ideas with the community.

  2. This one will go on top of my bookmark list as I’m sure I’ll have forgotten this once the next update comes around. Thanks a ton!

    • Well you know the main reason I wrote it down was so that I didn’t forget😉

      I am glad it helped someone else as well 🙂

  3. Dear Mark,

    Kindly help me. I tried the other way also by downloading localinstaller.zip and then configuring but it is asking product key and activation code.

    Please help its very urgent.

  4. Right here is the right webpage for everyone who wants to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with
    you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject which has been
    discussed for decades.Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

  5. FYI the links in the article are out of date as our DNS has changed (was always using http even though there was ftp in the url) and the link changes with each release.

    The current site.xml file the latest release (E30.1) is found at http://download.teamstudio.com/Edition30.1/en/update/site.xml

    Of course as new releases come out the Edition30.1 part will need to be changed accordingly.

    Thanks for posting this Mark, I point customers towards it when all else fails with the widgets.

    Cheers

    Teamstudio
