I am looking for a nice cms and after trying a few, I decided to try silverstripe today.

Using windows7 and WAMP2.1 I get this error when I try to install sliverstripe on my local machine:

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'view/TemplateGlobalProvider.php' (include_path='.;C:\wamp\www\clunysilver/framework;C:\wamp\www\clunysilver/framework/parsers;C:\wamp\www\clunysilver/framework/thirdparty;.;C:\php\pear') in C:\wamp\www\clunysilver\framework\core\Core.php on line 246

Can someone please help and tell me where do I get the view/TemplateGlobalProvider.php file and where do I put it?
I couldn't find any folder called view in the site's folders.

Thank you

Ok, found the problem.

Somehow the unzipping of the package went wrong, and the whole view folder was not there.

I extracted the package into www and renamed the foler to my site's name, that somehow created a new folder with my site's name and left the silverstripe folder as well. The site folder had partial folders in it.

To fix that, I create an empty folder for my site, extracted the package in there and then copied all the folders from the extracted folder into my site's folder.

Everything works now.
