    Default Install Zimlets in Zimbra Desktop

    Is there a good tutorial for installing Zimlets on ZD. I am not running ZCS at this time and I don't have the time to implement it right now. This is for all of my personal machines.

    I am constantly bringing Open Source Products to the attention of people.
    Zimbra looks good so far, but I can see where there is definitely a need to clean up a number of facets to make migrating to this product simpler for the regular Joe Computer User. Once this product is matured, bundling it with OpenOffice.org would be a great answer to the MS Office product line and could really get a lot of attention with the general computing public.

    I tried the commands that were in the linked forum discussion. They didn't work for me. All I get is " 'java' is not a recognized internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

    You need to specify your environment (OS version etc.) you deployed ZD.
    But I guess you have to move to zdesktop directory you installed before run command "java", like as
    cd C:\WorkArea\MyInstalls\Zimbra\zdesktop

    I am running ZD 1_0_2 build 1652 on Toshiba Laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium, 320 GB HD, 4 GB RAM, T6500 Intel CPU. I was in directory c:\Users\Debbies\AppData\Local\Zimbra\zdesktop when I ran the script that was listed for a windows installation at the link provided earlier in this thread. I received the 'java' error at this point. I have the zimlets I want to deploy stored in the zimlets subdirectory. I substituted the zimlet name in the example command with the zimlet that I wished to install.

    The Zimbra product looks nice on the outside but it sure isn't inuitive to get setup. This will hinder it's being adopted by the general public. I hope to see these issues resolved, because this is a promising piece of software.
