Re: [EP-tech] Eprints Windows installation Issue

I don't believe that EPrints for window server was ever fully supported, and I don't think there has been a release that was claimed to run on windows in years (2008 is the most recent release I could find).  It's unlikely that there's anyone in the community with experience with this.  Documentation is on the wiki at http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Installing_Eprints_3_on_Microsoft_Windows -- please feel free to add to the documentation -- you're quite likely to already be one of the community experts on this :)

The norm is to install on linux, for which there is good documentation, including a training video at http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Training_Video:EPrints_Install
