The errors you are getting could also occur if you haven't installed the
shared browser.  This component is not included in the standard AG2
release.  It is a separate installer, available from the same web page
where you retrieved the AG2 software.


The installer should set up your mailcap file properly.

Yes, in fact that's what I was going to have you do. :)

python MailcapSetup.py --help

It should print out some usage information (this assumes python is in

your path). Here's a quick and dirty tutorial:

python MailcapSetup.py --mime-type "application/x-ag-shared-browser"

--executable "C:\Documentst and Settings\All Users\Application


--description "This is the shared browser" --nametemplate


That should generate a file in C:\Documents and

Settings\<username>\Application Data\AccessGrid\mailcap

Please let me know if there are any errors or if it doesn't generate the

file. Thanks!

Yes, mailcapSetup.py is within the AGTk 2.0 directory. Can I generate

the mailcap file manualy by using this program?

That shouldn't make much difference as it get's the name for 

that folder out of the registry. Do you have C:\Program 

Files\AGTk 2.0\MailcapSetup.py (replacing c:\Program Files 

with wherever you installed it)?

directories you indicated and within any other directory. 




und using AGTk have been done with the same Userid. I am using the 

German version of Windows XP, which means, that the directory 

c:\Documents and Settings is called c:\Dokumente und Einstellungen

Kind Regards

For whatever reason you don't have a valid mailcap file. Can

you send the mailcap file from c:\\Administrator\Application




and also from C:\Documents and

Settings\<username>\Application Data\AccessGrid\mailcap wher 

<username> is the user you're trying to run as. Also, did you 

by chance install the AGTk as another user than the one 

you're currently running as?

the Shared


Browser application I get the following error message:

No Client registered for the selected application

(mime type = application/x-ag-shared-browser)

How can I register a client?

Kind regards
