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.

This is true now.

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?

I doubt it.

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

I suspect that you are the first to use this on windows.

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

I'm not sure.  I suspect it wouldn't be too hard to work them
into the existing recipe, so I suggest going for that.

I see this recipe as somewhat of a proof of concept.  I'm working on
a separate recipe that takes a somewhat different approach, which I'll
discuss in a separate thread.

I'll also note that I hope that the Zope 3.4 distribution will look quite
different from the Zope 3.3 distribution, especially, on Windows.
This may or may not be relevant to an instance recipe as I'll try to write up
later today. :)
