Launch Stack Issue

Postby jpyck » Fri Mar 14, 2014 8:21 pm

Hi,

LiveCode 6.5.2, LCU 1.3.3, Win 8.0

In LCU I am trying to open the launch stack in lesson 4.
I went through all the steps indicated in the FAQ file and error messages.
File association is OK,Check for content update, right click and try to download etc. Always same error message: "Stack file was not found...etc"


Anyone know where I can actually locate the Stack file?

Thanks.

Running into the same issue here. It's as though the content has gone missing.

Hi Johnny,
No answer here, but I got a reply from runrev support
lcu.byu.edu/stacks/FirstStackInstructions.rev
This link will let you download the stack. You can then open it from livecode.
Hope this helps,
Jack

Windows 8 you say? Anybody see that on other platforms? (I have OSX and Win 7 here.) Regardless, I'll check it out.

Hi Devin,
Can you send me direct links to the stacks in LCU (like this one : lcu.byu.edu/stacks/FirstStackInstructions.rev). That works for me.
Thanks

Jpyck contacted me off list and I think we may have discovered the problem. Many of the stacks that are launched by LCU were created when LiveCode was still called Revolution (the name change happened in 2010.) At that time LiveCode stack files were saved using a .rev file extension instead of the current .livecode. This means that users who only recently began using LiveCode probably would not have a file association for the .rev file extension, and no obvious way to create it. The solution is to save a stack from LiveCode using a .rev file extension, then to use that file to create the file association in your Mac or Windows computer.

More details can be found in the LCU FAQ: http://lcu.byu.edu/help/lcu_faq.lc#Q9

Thanks again jpyck, and here's hoping this will solve some nagging problems some users have been having.
