I'm bringing this up again. That link is only just under 30 MB big, Pete. Is it right?

Yup...mostly it's a script that downloads the image that it writes to the RPi.

Personally I would

1 - create your microSD card with HS3 lite on it.
2 - copy out the /usr/shar/HomeSeer directory to a USB stick or whatever
3 - create a new RPi3 Stretch build
4 - install mono
5 - copy your backed up HS directory to your new RPi3 SD card
6 - configure the RPi to autostart Homeseer.

This will provide newest RPi3 OS of Stretch and newest Mono and would be a learning experience.

Well... I just want a plain Zee2 installation so I can debug issues with my plugins on it.

I want to find issues that others using Zee2 might have.

And it's for demoing HS. I've been asked by the local library to do a speech on "smart homes" and my approach to it, I'd like to do a short demo too.

That is the correct link. I believe the installer is based on the Raspberry Pi NOOBS Lite installer: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/noobs/

This gets burnt to the SD card, then it downloads and installs the full OS image from the web.

Yeah, this looks good!

Just last question. Is it possible to get the homeseer database (or entire directory) out from the SD-card using a Windows computer?

I think WinSCP would be your best bet for that. You can drag-drop folders as well as files.

Ah, I only have the SD-card. It's not in the Pi.

Thats not good, the boot partition is FAT32, which is readable with plain Windows!

@Magnus,

When you install the HS3 Zee2 download image it just writes a boot partition with a script to the microSD card nothing else. When you boot this microSD card live on the RPi a script runs which formats the microSD card with a new boot and system partition and then it writes or copies over the Homeseer 3 Zee 2 directory. The boot partition is a Fat partition and the OS partition is an Int partition plus it writes a DR recovery boot (dual boot).

The easiest way to read the Zee2 configured RPi microSD card would be to create a live Ubuntu USB or ISO to run latest version of Ubuntu.

You can move files around, copy files, edit SQLite files, et al and copy stuff over to another formatted USB stick.

You can too read and edit SQLite databases in Windows. It is though a bit more difficult to read the Linix based Int4 formatted partitions with Windows unless you are using WinSCP (SSH) connecting to your RPi remotely.

Have a read here relating to different types of file systems utilized today with different OS's.

Types of file systems

Might be easier to create a Linux / RPi virtual machine on your Windows computer to utilize for testing.

I gave up on the files, and started from scratch instead.

But thanks Pete and zwolfpack. It worked perfectly! No problems at all.
