Hey JW,

I'm spending some time on making zc.recipe.zope3instance run properly on Windows. There're at least two issues to sort out:

1) Usually(?) Zope-3 is installed using the *.msi installer on Windows. The recipe should look in the "Scripts" sub directory of the parent directory of the Python executable for the mkzopeinstance.bat command.

2) The 'runzope', 'debugzope' and 'scriptzope' scripts have some extra (Python) path information patched in. However, '\' characters in these paths need to be escaped properly.

Is anyone else using this recipe for deploying Zope-3 applications on Windows? Or maybe people are using an alternative recipe for this purpose?

Are there any other known issues with running this recipe on Windows?

Should fixes for these issues go into the current recipe, of would it be better to introduce a Windows specific recipe?

Note that Gocept also made an improved version of the zope 3 instance recipe, here:


It might be interesting to take that as a base.

My opinion would be that the current recipe should be made Windows aware, as I think there is a lot of code that can be shared. It could be that you end up developing a separate recipe but in the same package though, sharing lots of code.

I also heard Jim mumble about wanting to do (separate? independent?) work on the instance recipe as well.
