I uploaded the installer there, but it doesn't work for me.  This was built from


after changing the Windows buildout in that tag to point at the
correct 2.8b2 tarball.  Then the build completed without error, and
all the tests passed from the build/ directory (

    bin\python bin\test.py -vv --all

run from the inst/build/ directory, in a native DOS box, Win XP Pro
SP2).  These pieces went into it:

C:\Code\28b2\inst>dir tmp
04/11/2005  02:52 PM         9,881,382 Python-2.3.5.exe
04/11/2005  02:52 PM         8,535,749 Python-2.3.5.tgz
04/18/2005  04:23 PM         3,940,871 pywin32-204.win32-py2.3.exe
06/04/2005  11:37 AM         5,298,645 Zope-2.8.0-b2.tgz

Running the installer, and accepting all the defaults, appeared to
work fine then.  But the Zope service "doesn't work" -- "nothing
visible happens", although it chews up a lot of CPU.  The Windows
Application log has lots of unencouraging entries then, like

Zope_-1444516661 (Zope instance at C:\Zope-Instance): process
terminated with exit code 1.
Traceback (most recent call last):

and then repeats of "created process" + PySECURITY_ATTRIBUTES +
"sleep" with increasing times, and finally

Zope_-1444516661 (Zope instance at C:\Zope-Instance): restarting too
frequently; quit

followed by

The Zope_-1444516661 service has stopped (Zope instance at C:\Zope-Instance).

Maybe that's unique to my box -- someone else want to try the installer?

If it's not unique to my box, well, that isn't good <wink>.  I don't
have more time to look at this today.  Mark, is the problem obvious to

There's nothing particularly interesting in the instance's event.log;
the tail end is just repetitions like this:
