[resolved] Windows OK? (3 posts)

    I'm running my developments on Windows 8.1 machine with fine installed WAMPP.
    Whenever I try to open a po- or pot-file in Loco administration it gives this error:

    Error: Bad file path <the path>

    I'm absolutely sure that the paths do exist and Read/Write permissions are granted.
    Does it actually run on Win OS? If not so please mention that in the installation text.

    Update:
    The path substring in the error message is constructed like:

    W:\\www\\violacase <etc>

    The use of double backslashes seems to be the problem.

    The answer is that Windows servers are not supported.

    Thanks for your suggestion - I've added a note in the install instructions and also in the FAQs. These notes will go live at the next release.

    There's already a feature request open for Windows support:

    As this is a duplicate, I am marking as resolved.
