paths with spaces causes installer to fail when Mapbender is chosen to install

Reported by: Jeff McKenna Owned by: Jeff McKenna
Priority: blocker Milestone: 4.1.0 release
Component: MS4W - Nullsoft Installer Version: 4.0.5

Description

  • this has been a long-time issue, as one specific Apache directive used in the Mapbender Apache config ("FcgidWrapper") cannot accept any paths with spaces, causing an error and Apache will not start
  • this can potentially break the entire MS4W installation, if the user chooses to install Mapbender with other apps
  • proper solution is to update the installer to always use the Windows short name, for all paths, such as C:\PROGRA~1

Fixed. All MS4W apps and base installation will always use the Windows short name for paths, when using the installer.
(latest installer is available now at: https://ms4w.com )
