Just to be sure: did you restart zope after you changed/added the products?
If no: do it!
If yes: take a look at the Boring Product HOWTO (
http://www.zope.org/Members/gtk/Boring/HowTo-Boring/ ), maybe it enlights

If you have your Zope installed locally and running Windows try the
Install Python 1.5 and then add

import sys

in your product's python-modules. To start the debugger insert

import pywin.debugger; pywin.debugger.set_trace()

at the point, where the debugger should start.

Good luck!
