Dear Expert community

I have so far been using IzPack 3.5 to produce installation files, but there seems to be a problem with Windows 8, so I have downloaded IzPack 5. This causes a problem as I cannot use my old version 3.5 XML-installation files. Is it possible that you have some simple XML files that goes with IzPack 5 that I can use as a template.  Iam not at all into writing XML-code.

best regards
Jorgen

Have you looked yet at izPack wiki?
I found this very basic xml template:

<izpack:installation version="5.0"
                     xmlns:izpack="http://izpack.org/schema/installation"
                     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
                     xsi:schemaLocation="http://izpack.org/schema/installation http://izpack.org/schema/5.0/izpack-installation-5.0.xsd">
 
  <info>
    <appname>Test</appname>
    <appversion>0.0</appversion>
    <appsubpath>myapp</appsubpath>
    <javaversion>1.6</javaversion>
  </info>
 
  <locale>
    <langpack iso3="eng"/>
  </locale>
 
  <guiprefs width="800" height="600" resizable="no">
    <splash>images/peas_load.gif</splash>
    <laf name="substance">
      <os family="windows" />
      <os family="unix" />
      <param name="variant" value="mist-silver" />
    </laf>
    <laf name="substance">
      <os family="mac" />
      <param name="variant" value="mist-aqua" />
    </laf>
    <modifier key="useHeadingPanel" value="yes" />
  </guiprefs>
 
  <panels>
    <panel classname="TargetPanel"/>
    <panel classname="PacksPanel"/>
    <panel classname="InstallPanel"/>
    <panel classname="FinishPanel"/>
  </panels>
 
  <packs>
    <pack name="Test Core" required="yes">
      <description>The core files needed for the application</description>
      <fileset dir="plain" targetdir="${INSTALL_PATH}" override="true"/>
      <parsable targetfile="${INSTALL_PATH}/test.properties"/>
    </pack>
  </packs>
 
</izpack:installation>

Unfortunately, I've never used IzPack, so I have no direct experience, but if you're experienced you should be able to see the differences between your xml files and this one (unless that wiki be outdated!)

Good luck
