"I gave up. Adios InfoSniper"
Version: InfoSniper Worldmap Visitors 1
May be Pros could be found if the app could start.
Attempt to start triggers error messages related to the script.
1/ My OS/Browser
My computer runs on Win XP, SP2.
I use Firefox, not IE.
Remark: InfoSniper points out that it runs on Vista only:
AA/ Is anyone still using Vista?
BB/ I have never learnt that HTML, PHP, etc could run on one specific OS only.
2/ My PHP
To test PHP files on my computer I use XAMPP for Windows.
XAMPP is for Windows 2000, 2003, XP and Vista. It contains: Apache, MySQL, PHP + PEAR, Perl, etc.
My <Computer + XAMPP + Firefox> equipment runs successfully any PHP file from W3Schools Online Tutorials.
3/ InfoSniper Worldmap Visitors 1
The downloaded package includes:
clear.gif, pin.jpeg, saved_addresses.php, worldmap.jpeg, worldmap.php, worldmap_track.php
There is no explanation, no comment.
4/ My tests and results:
4-1/ worldmap.jpeg is a planisphere.
4-2/ worldmap.php displays the planisphere. That all it does.
4-3/ worldmap_track.php does not start at all. Four error messages are displayed. Le last one is without appeal:
"Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'String could not be parsed as XML'..."
4-4/ I did not try saved_addresses.php, thinking it should be an output only.
4-5/ I gave up. Adios InfoSniper.
