There are installation instructions in the RB user documentation (it's a
user program, not an admin program, after all!)

Maybe this will help: here's the "helper" CMD script I use to get my
users to install RBTools.
Note that it assumes you have (with this cmd file)
1 - An "installers" folder containing
1A - "python-2.6.4.msi" (from http://python.org/ : we're not using
Active's products)
1B - "setuptools-0.6c11.win32-py2.6.exe" (from
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools)
2 - A "diffutils" folder containing your diff command structure.
2A - I have a project I'm working on to clarify WHICH version of diff to
use, but currently I recommend the package at
http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/diffutils.htm
3 - A "resourcekit" folder containing pathman.exe
3A - The Windows 2003 Server Resource Kit contains a tool called
"pathman.exe" which will let you modify the system/user PATH from a .cmd

After installing the above (I'm using C:\tools to make a C:\tools\bin
structure and a C:\tools\python structure) I add the paths to the PATH
and then run easy_install to install the RBTools package.

Note that I'm using perforce, so I'm "done" at this point.  You might
need more or less if you're using another source control product.

Hope that's useful to someone :)

Subject: How do I install RBTools under windows?

Hi,
I've installed ReviewBoard and have it working under linux, but now
want to instal RBTools under windows so I can use post_review. I've
install Active Python and download the rbtools package, but am not
sure what to do next. I've looked at the documentation on the review
board web site but haven't found anything. Are there installation
instructions  posted somewhere?

Thanks

Bruce
