by the way, copy / paste seems to work now.

I don't see a difference between copy as Wiki / Markdown / RST, though.

Hi Brendan,

I tried the portable version and it seems as if the user plugin folder is not 

Clicking on the <Open plugins folder> button in Preferences/Plugin shows this 

Could you check this please?

Thank you and Regards,

Subject: [Zim-wiki] Zim 0.62-rc2 Windows build published; lots of Windows build 
process cleanup done; more to be done

Hi all,

Over the last couple of weeks, I fixed a number of issues with the Windows 
build process for Zim. I'd been itching to upgrade on my Windows machine I use 
for my job, so I decided it was time to release a packaged build. I noticed 
that Jaap created a 0.67-rc2 tag less than a day ago. I merged that into my 
branch, did a few more fixes, and sent Jaap a pull request.

I have built, signed, and published current versions of the Windows package for 
0.67-rc2. I have only performed cursory tests on Windows 7 32-bit. Please 
backup your data before you try this.

The rest of this message quotes the release announcement:


*Please backup your data! This is an unstable and largely untested

Windows build process changes:
 * Cleaned up build README a lot.
 * Cleaned up build process a lot.
 * Added "README for Zim for Windows" file -- it's in your Start Menu /  Zim 
Desktop Wiki folder.
    * README mentions where you can find your Plugins folder!
 * Removed dependency on for the portable launcher and  
portable packaging.
 * Created our own standalone NSIS-based portable and DEBUG MODE  launchers 
(see new README in ./windows/src).
 * Removed requirement for build person to download "Microsoft.VC90.CRT"
 folder; found it in %WINDOWS%\WinSxS.
 * Created Python script that runs the desktop installer builder.
 * Prepared to merge Portable installer with Desktop installer (one  package); 
it's not done yet; for now we're shipping a Zip file for the  Portable version.

Still yet to be done on the Windows build process:
 * Desktop and Portable build in a single installer .exe.
 * Integrate missing Spell Check files into the package so the plugin  works.
 * See if Windows clipboard access is still a problem and investigate  and fix.
 * Test on several versions of Windows
