    I have been able to successfully install and run Monteverdi on a Windows XP machine in the past. I am unable to install and run Monteverdi 1.8. I was looking forward to using the new features.

      Can you give us more informations about the error during the installation? Did you get an error message? Did you try to install Monteverdi on Windows XP using the Windows binary installer?
      I’ve tested on Windows XP and the installation ran without problems for me .
      You can have also more clear and complete advises if you send your question to the user mailing list (

      Hope it helps.

Why would packages, that depend on each other and provided by the same team require different versions of the same library?

    What should I do to install Monteverdi?

  3. Hi Yuri,

    There might be an error in these packages. I think you should post this question on the maling list (where you will get more attention) and maybe open a bug on the bugtracker (
