New networked installer

The GermaniumWeb plugin (1.31) now comes in a new networked installer, which automatically installs Windows Installer 3.1 and the .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 if you don't already have them installed. This is commonly known as a bootstrapper.

However, this does mean that during installation, you will need a network connection, and if you are going to install GermaniumWeb on multiple machines, GermaniumWeb will be downloaded repeatedly, once for each machine.

If this does not suit your needs, or if you are having problems with the networked installer, we still provide the old-style standalone installer. However, we did not include Windows Installer 3.1 and the .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 in this standalone installer as this would have increased its filesize greatly.


If you encounter any problems with the networked installer, please post them on the plugin installation forum, and we'll try to get back to you promptly.
