    I didn't want to bother anyone, but after looking through the tread I couldn't find a clear answer to my issue. Here is my repository .xml file along with the theme. After I add my source, when I go to install Matrixx theme, i get the main Script Execution error. I do not have the hash key, but neither do I know how the hash is created. I'm on Windows XP. Please enlighten me???

    Okay, I took a look. You have the wrong size key. The key in your xml is 617909, but the size of your zip is actually 617931. So if you change accordingly, it should download fine.

    Also, in your update script, you don't need the RemovePath part, since the theme will be overwritten when issuing CopyPath.

    So I took a closer look at your source and there are three additional problems:

    1. Your link to the zip is not working. When I paste the URL into Safari, the zip is not downloaded.

    2. Your paths are lacking final slashes. So it should read:


    3. Even if I fix all that and put your Matrixx.zip on my website and download it, the script errors out, which leads me to suspect that your zip file is somehow screwed up and Installer can't unzip it. So I expanded the zip and recompressed on the Mac. That makes a different size file with a different hash. But it works.

    So if you want you can test this yourself. The source I made is:


    The zip file I made is here:

    Thanks Armadillo, it worked perfectly. Question though; what zip program are you using on the Mac. Does this mean that I need to go purchase a Mac inorder to run a repository???

    Mac OS X has a built-in compression feature. You just right-click on a folder and select Create Archive of file (in Tiger) or Compress file (in Leopard). This will instantly create a zip file that has never failed to work for me. So yeah, get a Mac

    Lots of problems. Why didn't you follow my advice I gave you in my PM and looked at the fixed xml I provided for the gravytrain xml? Just use that as template and fill in your specifics. Anyway, these are your problems:

    1. Your hash is wrong. I don't know how you obtained it. But here is the correct one for your zip: 392ec655233eef5529984977907ca7da. I would suggest you download my ArtWorker application, since it will help you in obtaining both date and hash keys.

    2. You are inconsistent in your scripts and the paths don't have terminal slashes. The correct script would be (this applies for both install and update; uninstall has no slash and that is fine):

    In Safari, it will just show you the text of the xml. Saves page source and you will have the xml ready for editing.

    You gotta pay a little bit more attention to your naming. All paths are case sensitive. Your unzipped theme folder is called "rabbits" and in your script you specify "Rabbits".
