I'm reposting this as my original post was buried in another thread. I've managed to get the zopeproject to work correctly on my Windows box thanks to the easy to follow instructions on the PyPI page for it. Next I tried to do a "python setup.py install" which, I was informed, is generally a bad idea to do and was suggested to use "virtualenv" to keep my global python nice and clean.
So I easy_installed virtualenv and making that work was a simple task. But once I'm inside my virtual environment, I can no longer get the zopeproject to compile the C extensions.
