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/Will Interlink support Lightning (Calendar extension)?
    • No, it does/will not.
      I do plan on a general use toolbox project that will include minimum required bits to run the calendar. So watch for that to happen in the future.
  • 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.
  • How do I obtain the source code for Interlink pursuant to Section 3.2 of the Mozilla Public License 2.0?
    • For versions 6914 to 6990: You may find the source code form of the covered software in the BinOC File Repository.
    • For later versions you will be informed of this information when reviewing the license in the Windows Installer. It will also be contained in "license.txt" located in the root directory of the application or along with the program files inside the compressed archive.
  • 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.
