The most ambiguous install docs ever

This helps prove my argument that engineers never make good technical writers. They make too many assumptions to the effect that their users understand things as well as they themselves do.

I really wanted to use this app, as I can see many uses for it with the solutions I build for my customers (read: potential $$$). But while I have had success with all the Tigra apps, this one I couldn't even install.

I have Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.1.4 running on XP. I have a phpinfo.pho file that runs fine. But when I try and run the install.php, nothing happens, it just reloads with the defaults. I have tried it with absolute paths, relative paths, always the same problem and always with this error in the error.log:

"PHP Notice: Use of undefined constant e_notice - assumed 'e_notice' in C:\Program Files\Apache\Apache2.2\htdocs\calendar\install.php on line 112, referer: http://localhost/calendar/install.php"

And the second sections says to add a PHP snippet 'in the beginning of the page'. What page? The page I intend to embed my calendar in? The control panel page mentioned in the previous sentence? In any random page?

A demo pack like what comes with Tigra would be an excellent tool, as I've often reverse engineered them to get around these problems. Not so in this case.

Unfortunately I am going to have to look at another product.

You might give it one more try by starting from square one...
