Summary0001222: \Raytracing\Templates\ install folder missing - file ProjectStd.pov missing - Povray error StdFinish undefined

When Raytracing - Povray gives error and no raytrace rendered.

Folder exists; C:\Program Files (x86)\FreeCAD0.13\data\Mod\

But sub folders missing; .\Raytracing\Templates\

Hence file ProjectStd.pov is missing (which defines StdFinish) hence Povray error.

Additional InformationLikely cause - msi does not create empty folders. So file ProjectStd.pov must be missing from msi project.

Minor: If people know Povray.

Major: If people don't know Povray and just want a render.

Workaround: (a) Create folders C:\Program Files (x86)\FreeCAD0.13\data\Mod\Raytracing\Templates (b) In folder create file ProjectStd.pov containing minimum;

  #declare StdFinish = finish { diffuse 0.2 specular 0.6 }

Proficient Povray users can add their own sky_shere, floor plane, background planes, etc. (as is already defined in ProjectStd.pov)
TagsNo tags attached.

The pov templates are indeed not included with the MSI installer and should be added to WindowsInstaller/FreeCADData.wxs.

J├╝rgen or Werner, if any of you reads this, is it sufficient to simply add needed stuff there? How do you generate the UID?

Under Windows there is a utility "uuidgen.exe" which gets installed with Visual Studio I guess.
