CUP install - A cautionary tale
« on: August 26, 2015, 01:56:25 PM »

Whatever can go wrong, might go wrong:

About a month ago I did a fresh CUP install and was having all kinds of problems and errors. Which was strange, because I had a working

CUP install before starting over. (Which I kept and didn't mess with.) I think i started over about 5 times and still was having problems.

To shorten a long and frustrating story: one of the CUP parts didn't extract properly, and was half the size that it should have been. The

checksum of the downloaded file was right, so it must have been a 7-zip issue or user error. It took a long time to track down this

problem. After finding it and fixing it everything worked flawlessly.

The moral of the story is: If your CUP install is not working, after you've done everything "by the book", the problem could be somewhere

else.

I must have been one of the lucky ones, I didn't have a problem with the install and it's working. The only problem I ran into was the dreaded 6do TRI CTD, which was narrowed down to the CUP Vismod... I downloaded the other version as suggested but still got the CTD on occasion. I have since not enabled the Vismod 8 or 9 and haven't had it since.
