Note: The installer script from the demo archive seems to have some small bugs - read below on how to fix.

Bugs were encountered installing IBrowse 2.5.5 demo (downloaded 2021-08-15 from on a Amiga 1200 / KS3.0 / WB3.1, choosing "68020-030" version in installer dialogue. Line numbers in the screenshots below might be slightly inaccurate (e.g. due to additional comments).

Error "GETENV: String too long!" is probably caused by a "getenv" that doesn't properly evaluate under AmigaOS3, you have to make a little change to this "if" statement (near line nr. 1640):

Error "Unterminated string literal" might be a quoted string that has to be properly terminated on the same line (near line nr. 1507):

...and it works! :-)

Fixed installer script completes installation!
