Bluefish for Windows

Attempting to install Bluefish on Windows XP Pro SP3

I went here

http://code.google.com/p/bluefish-win/

Which sent me to here

http://sourceforge.net/projects/bluefish/files/

Which gave me a download link here

http://sourceforge.net/projects/bluefish/files/bluefish/2.0.0/Bluefish-2.0.0-1-setup.exe/download

So far so good…

Ran Bluefish-2.0.0-1-setup.exe

Which did the following:

Bluefish v2.0.0-1 Setup

Downloading gtk-runtime-2.14.7-rev.a.exe

Connecting…
GTK+ Download failed: download incomplete

http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/project/pidgin/GTK%2B%…

It appears internap.dl.sourceforge.net is inaccessible at the moment. So…

Searched for gtk-runtime-2.14.7-rev.a.exe and downloaded it and installed separately

http://transact.dl.sourceforge.net/project/pidgin/GTK%2B%20for%20Windows/2.14.7%20Rev%20A/gtk-runtime-2.14.7-rev-a.exe

Then re-ran Bluefish-2.0.0-1-setup.exe and it works.

I must say the upgrade of Bluefish for Windows from 1.x to 2 is well worth it! Excellent improvements in Syntax highlighting, Auto complete and general useability
