Hi All,

Thanks for reporting the issue! There is a plan to provide a readme file side by side with the download packages for install instructions. We will let you know when it is implemented. Thanks!

Hi Ludwin;

  Agreed. Appeon knows about this issue as its been reported by a handful of PB2019 beta testers already.

  However, I will now transfer this ticket over to the main Support/Engineering team so that they can monitor this installation issue further.

Thanks again for testing PB2019 beta!

Regards ... Chris

Hi Chris,
Thank you for the link. 
The full download worked.

But somehow I expected to do a similar thing from the download offered by the installer.
To me it makes no sense to offer a download without installation when you can’t run the installation later on.  That’s misleading!

Hi Ludwin;

 We're you able to resolve your installation issue(s) OK using the full download?

Hi Ludwin;

  The Auto "Download / Install" should have started the installation automatically. We have had issues with this on some PB2019 Tester PC's. I would now recommend using the full download option.

Please use this URL to download the entire ZIP. Once downloaded, unzip and run the AutoRun to run the installation from these local files.


Regard ... Chris

With the Appeon insaller for PB2019 Beta I choose the option "Download only".
Now I have all the ZIP-Files but no idea how to start the install process.
What did I miss?
