Hi Phil,

Thanks for your email.

The LDAP error, as it turns out, was from "zkinterbasdb" or something like
that - something I probably picked up thinking it was kinterbase.

Forgive my ignorance, but what was your procedure for installing kinterbase?
I've tried just installing kinterbasDA, which required kinterbasdb. So I've
tried installing kinterbasdb (from an executable, rather than the more
familiar simple compressed file), but I keep getting an ImportError: DLL
load failed when looking at the product in Control_Panel/Products.

The error refers to a line "import _kinterbasdb as _k". I've assumed that
its referring to import _kinterbasdb.pyd, rather than a dll, as thats all
that I can find. I've tried copying it into several places, but I'm assuming
that its compiled by the exe at install time, and is specific to the folder
its placed in. Or I could be completely wrong!

Any hints as to your procedure would be appreciated, as this is getting
frustrating (probably meaning I'm missing stupid things).
