Installing MapGuide Maestro
MapGuide Maestro is available in two forms:
- A windows executable installer
- A zip file
Installing on Windows
You can choose either the installer or zip file
MapGuide Maestro requires .net Framework 4.6.1 installed first. The installer will download and install this for you if it is not present
As of the 4.0 release of Maestro, the zip package differs from the installer package in that the zip package does not include the :doc:
Local Connection Mode <local_connection_mode> feature.
Installing on Linux/Mac OSX
MapGuide Maestro is not tested for these platforms. Binaries are only provided for the adventurous.
Before you run MapGuide Maestro, you need to install the Mono framework. Mono is available for download here
The installation is simply unzipping the file:
Then run the application:
cd Maestro mono Maestro.exe
For distributions like Ubuntu, the Mono package is split into several components. You need to ensure that the winforms component is installed. The following command installs it for Ubuntu::
sudo apt-get install mono-runtime libmono-system-windows-forms4.0-cil libmono-system-core4.0-cil libmono-system-numerics4.0-cil libmono-system-web4.0-cil
For other distros, please consult your system documentation.
Please note that Mono support for WinForms is not 100% stable. Even though WinForms is feature complete, some features do not work flawlessly. This means that there are occasional drawing problems. Flipping a tab page back and forth usually solves the problem. Some buttons are missing, because Mono renders them outside the visible area. There are also some issues with certain icons. For best results, use the most current release of Mono (currently 2.10.2) where possible. The minimum usable release is Mono 2.8
Local Connection Mode <local_connection_mode> feature is only available on windows. The zip package does not include this feature.
