Bug Description

************ workaround:

download from


and run an offline setup

Version: SikuliX 1.1
OS: Win 7 64bt, Ubuntu 14.04 64bit

1. Download the setup file and start the setup with java -jar <setupfile>
2. in the configuration screen select the 1st option (to install the IDE) and the 3rd option (for tesseract)
3. keep on clicking yes for each popup

=> the installer crashes because it cannot download the tesseract file

Without having the actual URL now from the setup log I believe it is the same as on the web page http://sikulix.com/specials/files/offline-setup.html :


The tesseract project is not hosted on googlecode anymore, hence the download would end with an HTTP404.

Expected behavior:
The tesseract default file (in English) is automatically downloaded.

Workaround: download the tesseract file before running the setup and put the unzipped file next to the setupfile. The setup will automatically choose the offline version and not try to download the file again. Further, note that this seems only to work fpr tesseract 3.02.02, but not for the newer 3.04.x version. For that the setup routine goes awry.

N.B. The tesseract file might directly be downloaded via http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/tesseract-ocr-alt/tesseract-ocr-3.02.eng.tar.gz
