So far so good, I got opencats running locally on windows.
the obstacle in encountered was a folder named install_block. after trying to install and following the documentation
i deleted this folder and voila it deployed and i am able to use. but it still needs some optimization.
i tried to convert add a pdf resume to a candidate record and got the following error, the only error so far btw.
Fatal error: Class 'COM' not found in C:\xampp\htdocs\opencats\lib\DocumentToText.php on line 362
Next phase is to try to get this running via my shared web host. so i can log on remotely and add a user. securely.
