I am trying to get to grips with MapGuide Open Source 2.1.0, and the first stumbling block is the Windows installer (!).

I got the main binary from the MapGuide download page which has the description 'executable that will install the MapGuide Server and MapGuide Web Extensions'. From what I can gather, previous versions of MapGuide (e.g. 2.0.2) had two separate installers - one for the server and another for the web extensions, but the 2.1.0 installer is supposed to bundle the two.

This being the case, why can't I see a web studio directory inside C:\Program Files\OSGeo\MapGuide\Web\www ? It seems like web studio is not installed.

I tried installing the 2.0.2 web studio from its separate installer but that seems to be causing problems.

Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?

Any help much appreciated.


Sorry, I think the web studio is no longer supported and no longer being developed. Try Maestro instead!

  • Yes unfortunately this is the case, I eventually saw the news in one of the archived mailing list exchanges. I kind of wish the documentation or just the web site was more up to date / told you more useful information, but then I generally wish this about every OS product I work with. I am such a n00b user I'm not allowed to upvote yet. – fudgeFingers Jan 17 '12 at 20:15
  • Web Studio is no longer bundled, because it has been pulled out of the MapGuide OS svn repo as there was nobody to maintain it. – jumpinjackie Jan 18 '12 at 7:25

Logical question: which of the three configuration options did you choose while installing: bundled configuration, IIS configuration or manual configuration?

In the latter case it is normal that nothing is installed.


If I am not mistaken web studio comes with the autodesk subscription. (they could have changed that since I last downloaded).
