Given the sparsity of the Win32 installation docs (included in the
distribution), I managed to get v2.0pre14 up and running, but not without a
The included installation notes mainly pertain to NT, and indicate that
during installation you will be prompted if you want the cipe service
installed. Of course NT and Win2k have their differences, and therefore I
was not asked or prompted.
The cipe adapter installed without a hitch, but when I check the Services
with the MMC, there was no cipe-daemon/service anywhere. I confirmed from
the win2k.inf that all the files were installed correctly. I then had to
manually execute "cipsrvr.exe install", which to my surprise installed the
service, and voila it's now visible in the MMC. You are then able to use
the MMC or command line (cipsrvr) to control the service.
Is this how the win2k installation should work, or is this another
something to be fixed? The docs have no win2k specifics at all.
