Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is the next release?
    • When it is done.
  • How do I install on Linux?
    • Extract the linux tarball to a user writable location or chmod 777 in the desired location in order for the internal updater to be able to write to the "install location" when updating. Other than that it doesn't particularly matter where it is on the system. Though, one should not be relocating it on a regular basis.
      THIS IS NOT A PORTABLE INSTALL! The application data such as the profile will be stored in the current user's home directory.
  • Will there be a portable version?
    • No, not at this time.
  • Does Interlink support Lightning (Calendar extension)?
    • By popular demand it does now as of Version 7025.
  • The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000001d). Click OK to close the application.
    • As documented above, 64bit Windows builds require you to have the AVX instruction set. If you are getting that error then it means you don't and will have to use the 32bit build.
  • Does Interlink support Windows XP because there are XP builds elsehere?
    • No Binary Outcast (and by extension Unified XUL Platform) Project supports Windows XP.

      The builds you MAY find elsewhere are unofficial and modified (poorly) to run on Windows XP without care to over all platform stability or security of your system. Make no mistake, these builds by third parties are not supported nor are representative of this or any other BinOC project.

      Binary Outcast cannot be held responsible for support of these builds nor the likely case of failure or compromise of those systems by running software that was not created, compiled, or distributed by BinOC or its approved agents.
  • My question/issue isn't listed here. Where can I ask/report it?
    • You may ask your question or report your issue via the Issue Tracker on the GitHub repository or via our IRC channel which you can find in the Interact section.
