    First download from:

    https://www.peardrop.co.uk/downloadfiles/glade4_win32.zip (32 bit windows)
    https://www.peardrop.co.uk/downloadfiles/glade4_win64.zip (64 bit windows)

    Unzip the file to a directory on your PC, then follow the instructions in the README.txt file.

    Has anyone else had an issue with being unable to un-zip the 4.1.7 version ?
    I get a file is invalid message from windows.

    Thanks Mike D.

    Works fine for me. Maybe your download was corrupted?

    Thanks, My Explorer must have had a corrupt cached version, downloaded a few times with the same problem, cleared Explorer history and it downloaded without issue.
    User error :)

    Thanks Mike D.

    i am having issue with import of ui module. Glade is showing the following message whenever i am opening it.
    >>
    # WARNING: Failed to import ui module – please check your PYTHONPATH!
    # WARNING: PYTHONPATH is currently : D:glade4_win32
    >>
    I tried setting the environment variable PYTHONPATH to %GLADE_HOME% as told in the README.txt file but still the above message is coming up.
    Glade version is 4.2.7 compiled on May 25 2012.

    How can i fix it??

    Few things:

    1) I assume you installed Glade at D:glade4_win32 and set the environment variable %GLADE_HOME% to this dir, and %PYTHONPATH% so the same dir.

    2) Do you have write permission to this directory? Is there the ui.py file in this directory, and is it readable?

    3) Check that you are not running one version of Glade and pointing PYTHONPATH at another version of the ui.py file. This will also give the error you see.

    Also I'd recommend downloading the latest 4.3.1 build, as there were a few issues with 4.2.7/4.3.0.

    –>Point (1) was right. I did exactly the same thing.

    –>Full control was set to the drive in which installed glade and ui.py is present in this directory which is in readable format.

    –>Deleted all other versions of glade present.

    Still the error is coming in windows.
    By the way i switched to glade 4.3.1 as suggested. The same problem is present in this version also.
    Am i doing something wrong in setting the environment variables??

    Hard to say without further info. Make sure you delete any .pyc files from the installation, in case they are from a previous version. Or try installing in a different directory.

    Tried installing in different directory also without any luck. Still the same error showing up.

    One more thing is that whenever i am closing Glade application "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library " window is popping up showing "Runtime error".

    Ah, I have located the problem. The win32 version was missing the file 'types.py' (it is present in the win64 version). Without that, or a valid Python installation on your PC with 'types.py' in your PYTHONPATH, import ui failed.

    I have fixed the distribution win32 version and uploaded it to the website.

    Yes. That was it i guess.

    But have a new problem now. Software is crashing after around 10 seconds. I need not do anything for the app to crash.

    Log files? Crash dumps?

    I find it hard to fix some bugs as i'm not telepathic! ;)

    hehe.. ;)..

    No files are getting created after crash i guess.

    Well, with the latest build on a vanilla Windows 7 32 bit laptop, I get no crash. You did install the VC++ runtime DLLs? Although I wouln't expect it to even load without them.

    i ran the file vcredist_x86 before starting installation although i had VC++ installed in my system. This should install VC++ runtime DLLs right??
