Topic: install failed

Hello.  I would greatly appreciate any help.  My question is about the standard not pro version.  I have no problem whatsoever purchasing pro, but kind of need to see the standard version working, first.  Not off to a great start because I downloaded the zip file of the standard version, then uploaded to WordPress. So far so good.  Then I clicked to install and the install failed.  WordPress said "no valid plug ins were found."  Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?  Thanks very much for any advice!!

Re: install failed

You need to download and install WP-SimpleViewer, the dedicated SimpleViewer plugin for WordPress, from this page: http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … pleviewer/
(WP-SimpleViewer is not included in the SimpleViewer-Standard download zip package.)

Thank you Steve.  I'm still confused.  I believe I downloaded something from that site but will try again.  But the second part of your answer--in the parenthetical--confuses me.  What do you mean "WP-SimpleViewer is not included in the SimpleViewer-Standard download zip package."?  Do you mean the download you suggested will not be functional?  I am not familiar with the titles of your software and various options.  I am just trying to download the standard simpleviewer, to see if I like the features enough to buy the pro version.  I downloaded somewhere and the install failed.  So I am going to go to the link you referenced and try to download again.  Do you think I'm missing something? Thank you!!

Re: install failed

Update: I'm not sure what happened but I was able to upload and activate on the second try.  Thank you ...now can you please tell me...what features would I get from pro that not from standard?  I just re-read the list and seems like you get everything from standard.  I'm sure that can't be right.  Can you tell me the main benefits of pro?  Thank you again!!

Re: install failed

Urgh...getting a little frustrated.  Now I put a gallery into my page and the page says that I need javascript and flash player, so I click on link to install, which says that Google Chrome already has installed flash.  A slideshow shouldn't be this difficult to use.  sad  Any hints?  Thanks again for bearing with me...:)

Re: install failed

What do you mean "WP-SimpleViewer is not included in the SimpleViewer-Standard download zip package."?

The SimpleViewer-Standard download package includes a sample 'web' gallery (which can be used as a template to crate your own) and the installation file for svBuilder (a desktop application to create and edit galleries on your computer).
For more information on svBuilder, please see this page: http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … svbuilder/

WP-SimpleViewer, the dedicated SimpleViewer plugin for WordPress is a separate download.
For more information on WP-SimpleViewer, please see this page: http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … pleviewer/

what features would I get from pro that not from standard?

Please see the comparison chart between SimpleViewer-Standard and SimpleViewer-Pro here: http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … comparison
A list of Standard Configuration Options can be found here: http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … tions.html
A list of Pro Configuration Options can be found here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … tions.html

Now I put a gallery into my page and the page says that I need javascript and flash player

Please ensure that JavaScript is enabled in you browser.
You can check that Adobe Flash Player is installed by visiting this page: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/ … layer.html
If you continue to experience difficulties, please post the URL to your gallery so that I can take a look.
