Bluefish for Windows

Written by James McDonald

August 17, 2010

Attempting to install Bluefish on Windows XP Pro SP3

I went here

Which sent me to here

Which gave me a download link here

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

GTK+ Download failed: download incomplete…

It appears is inaccessible at the moment. So…

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

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
