Where is the IFX version?

Unread postby Kargall » Sun Jun 12, 2022 1:09 pm

Hello,
I want to start working with Clarisse again, so I downloaded the 5 PLE version. But when I start it, there is only the builder version.
How can this be done? How can I change "builder 5 to IFX 5?
Thanks

Hello, after installing, you should have on your desktop a shortcut ending with "PLE" :)

Else, assuming you're on Windows, you can create a new shortcut or modify one existing (Right click > properties) and add the tags `-flavor ifx` and/or `-ple` at the end of the target field.

Thanks Lucas,
It works, but it's a bit of a strange way of doing things. You would have expected to have a choice at the time of installation.
Thanks again.

It's the same download and installer for all modes. This way, when you buy a license, you don't need to re-download or re-install anything.
On Windows, which I believe you are using, the installer creates various Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts for all modes.

Hi anemoff,
"the installer creates various Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts for all modes."
That's right, I must have thought of it myself :oops:
Thanks

I would much prefer just a single shortcut/exe and for the correct version of Clarisse to load after the license check.
Crowding the desktop/start menu with numerous shortcuts is sloppy and untidy. Choice of python version should be set in preferences not yet more shortcuts. I don't see any advantage to the way this is currently.

We do have customers that both have Clarisse iFX and Clarisse BUiLDER that is why...
