[Zope-dev] Zope 2.7 broken on Windows

2004-01-06 Thread Andrew Veitch
http://collector.zope.org/Zope/1128

Not being able to use the calendar module on Zope 2.7 breaks our MailManager
and more importantly the CMF!

Has there been any progress on this? Or is there a sensible work-around I
can give to our users - other than to switch to Linux!

Looking at this a bit more I'm guessing that Python's new datetime module
was removed to avoid conflict with Zope's DateTime on Window's case
insensitive file system.

Checking out http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0235.html and followed up by
some quick testing it looks like it works fine so datetime could be added
back to the installer without causing any problems.

I think work-around for us will be just to supply the missing file with
advice on were to put it.

Is this sensible or have I missed something?

The workaround is to install python 2.3.2 onto a windows machine and copy the
datetime.pyd from the python installion to the appropriate location in your zope
installation. I don't have my windows box in front of me but IIRC it goes in the
Zope-2.7.0-b3/bin folder.

Better would be to install Python 2.3.3 and use that to run zope.  This 
also gives the advantage of allowing easier installation of third party 
extensions to Python.

 module was removed to avoid conflict with Zope's DateTime on Window's
 case insensitive file system.

I believe it's just a symptom of a more pervasive problem:  if you look at
Control Panel in your 2.7b3 Windows installation, you'll see that it
identifies the Zope version as 2.7b2.  Something went wrong with the Windows
installer build process, packaging an odd mix of new and old code.  I'm sure
this will be fixed in the next Zope 2.7 Windows beta.

That does make sense. I guess it is time to rtfm to learn how :)

I think the ClearWind Windows Installer works just fine, its built in a 
totally different manner from Zope Corps., Plone built from the same 
base works fine anyway. Its a beta installer, havent got much feedback, 
so be warned :)
