On Windows, gretl just tells the OS to open the PDF file. So
whatever is the default PDF viewer.
ShellExecute(NULL, "open", fname, NULL, NULL, SW_SHOW);
where "fname" is the name of the PDF file.
- Admin privileges are needed to install, which is
understandable. But it is a bit strange that the installer wants
the _one_ location where "personal data files" are stored. It
seems that that's the directory which then is written to the
preferences as the gretl user directory, but for _every_ user?
You mean you can have more than one user on Windows? ;-) I'll
have to look into that.
- (not windows-specific:) It seems impossible to load packaged
function files (.gfn) into gretl from somewhere on the harddisk.
This is a bit awkward (if I'm not missing something).
No, I don't think you're missing anything there. We could add a
"free range" file open box for .gfn files.
