Installation FAQ

I try to install bots at Windows 7/10, but…..
  • Probably a rights problem - you’ll have to have administrator rights in order to do a proper install.
  • Right click the installer program, and choose ‘Run as Administrator’.
  • sometimes the shortcut is not installed in the menu, and you will have to make this manually.
Does bots have edifact and x12 messages installed out-of-the-box?
No. But this can be downloaded on the sourceforge site either as part of a working configuration (plugin) of separate (grammars).
Bots is not working on linux - rights problems.
Did you start bots-webserver and/or bots-engine with sufficient rights - e.g. as root. Change the owner/rights of the files in botssys, usersys and config; run bots-webserver/bots-engine without root rights.

Error during windows installation

close failed in file object destructor:
sys.excepthook is missing
lost sys.stderr
  • seems to happen when UAC is turned off.
  • Actually bots just seems to be installed OK, and works OK…..
  • Fixed this in version 3.2
